[libvirt] [PATCH] esx: Fix race condition in esxVI_EnsureSession



When the session has expired then multiple threads can race while
reestablishing it.

This race condition is not that critical as it requires a special usage
pattern to be triggerd. It can only happen when an application doesn't
do API calls for quite some time (the session expires after 30 min
inactivity) and then multiple threads doing simultaneous API calls and
end up doing simultaneous calls to esxVI_EnsureSession.
