[libvirt] [PATCH 2/2] Lock the whole virConnect Object when disposing to avoid the thread race


Since the virConnect object is not locked wholely when doing
virConenctDispose, a thread can get the lock and thus might
cause the race.

Detected by valgrind:

The above race is caused by the eventLoop thread tries to handle
the net client event by calling the callback set by:
                                 conn, NULL);

I.E. remoteClientCloseFunc, which lock/unlock the virConnect object.

This patch is to fix it by locking the whole virConnect object when
disposing it.
