[libvirt] [libvirt-glib] mainloop integration fixes



Hey,

While testing Boxes, I've noticed that if I started a VM and then
let it in the background for a while, it usually crashed after
a while. When this happens, the backtrace is:

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0x00007ffff6671898 in gvir_event_handle_dispatch (source=0x7fffdc001f60, 
    condition=G_IO_IN, opaque=0x7fffdc0021a0) at libvirt-glib-event.c:135
135         (data->cb)(data->watch, data->fd, events, data->opaque);
(gdb) bt

and the corresponding gvir_event_handle structure is corrupted:

(gdb) p *data
$3 = {watch = 0, fd = 0, events = 1886417008, enabled = 1886417008, 
  channel = 0x7070707070707070, source = 1886417008, cb = 0x7070707070707070, 
  opaque = 0x7070707070707070, ff = 0x7ffff60cfba0 <virNetSocketEventFree>}
(gdb) p/x *data
$4 = {watch = 0x0, fd = 0x0, events = 0x70707070, enabled = 0x70707070, 
  channel = 0x7070707070707070, source = 0x70707070, cb = 0x7070707070707070, 
  opaque = 0x7070707070707070, ff = 0x7ffff60cfba0}


(I'm running with MALLOC_PERTURB_ set so the 0x70707070 pattern
indicates uninitialized memory).

Right before this happens, the libvirt-glib event debugging log has:

(gnome-boxes:29577): Libvirt.GLib-DEBUG: Remove handle 0x7fffdc0021a0 1 27

(gnome-boxes:29577): Libvirt.GLib-DEBUG: Update handle 0x7fffdc0021a0 1 27
1

(gnome-boxes:29577): Libvirt.GLib-DEBUG: Update for missing handle watch 1

(gnome-boxes:29577): Libvirt.GLib-DEBUG: Dispatch handler 0x7fffdc0021a0 0
0 1 0x7070707070707070


that is, libvirt removes a handle watch, and then updates this handle (in
other words, it calls virEventPollUpdateHandle after having called
virEventPollRemoveHandle on the same handle).
I don't know if it's legit for libvirt to do that, but we can make
libvirt-glib robust against this situation, which is what patch 5/5 does.
The first 3 patches are small cleanups, and 4/5 fixes a potential race
which I found while looking at this code.
