[libvirt] [PATCH v5 6/7] util: Add helpers for safe domain console operations



This patch adds a set of functions used in creating console streams for
domains using PTYs and ensures mutually exclusive access to the PTYs.

If mutualy exclusive access is not used, two clients may open the same
console, which results in corruption on both clients as both of them
race to read data from the PTY.

Two approaches are used to ensure this:
1) Internal data structure holding open PTYs.
        This is used internally and enables the user to forcibly
        terminate another console connection eg. when somebody leaves
        the console open on another host.

2) UUCP style lock files:
        This uses UUCP lock files according to the  FHS
        ( http://www.pathname.com/fhs/pub/fhs-2.3.html#VARLOCKLOCKFILES )
        to check if other programs (like minicom) are not using the pty
        device of the console.

        This feature is disabled by default and may be enabled using
        configure parameter
        --with-console-lock-files=/path/to/lock/file/directory
        or --with-console-lock-files=auto (which tries to infer the
        location from OS used (currently only linux).

        On usual linux systems, normal users may not write to the
        /var/lock directory containing the locks. This poses problems
        while in session mode. If the current user has no access to the
        lockfile directory, check for presence of the file is still
        done, but no lock file is created. This does NOT result in an
        error.
---
Diff to v4:
- fixed typos (traditionally)
- fixed configure.ac to work with automaticaly used values
- tweaked configure output line to line up with others without
  moving them
- using STRSKIP to skip the start of the string instead of 
  possibly skipping in the middle of a string
- fixed whitespace problems
- changed data type for pids to pid_t and tweaked printing formatters
- On failure to initialise mutex in virConsoleAlloc don't skip
  to virConsoleFree
- added comment to clarify why it's needed to unregister the callback
  handler
- Added OOM error reporting on some error paths.

Note to v4 review:
I changed the default value for the path of the lock files to "auto" so it will
get built with "/var/lock" on linux machines, so no change to the spec file is
needed.
