[libvirt] [PATCH] build: fix mingw ssize_t, syntax check



We are so close to a release that we don't want to pull in a
gnulib submodule update and risk regressions, since there has
been a lot of other gnulib churn upstream.  However, there are
a couple of gnulib issues that are worth fixing in isolation,
by applying local patches to gnulib.

There was an upstream gnulib bug in maint.mk that rendered most
of our syntax checks ineffective (and fixing it flushed out a
minor bug in our code):
https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-gnulib/2012-03/msg00194.html

There is still an upstream bug where gnulib uses the wrong type
for ssize_t on mingw; we need the fix now even though it has not
yet been accepted into gnulib:
https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-gnulib/2012-03/msg00188.html

* gnulib/local/top/maint.mk.diff: Pick up upstream gnulib
maint.mk.
* gnulib/local/m4/ssize_t.m4.diff: Work around gnulib bug.
* src/libvirt.c: Remove unused header.
---

Yes, I know reading a diff of a diff is hard.

Any objections to this?  I'd like to apply it before RC2 is built.

I am not set up to easily test if the ssize_t fix works on mingw.
I _did_ test it on Linux, including where I primed the configure
cache to intentionally treat ssize_t as missing, so I'm confident
the replacement mechanism works; I just don't know if it will
silence the warnings that Dan reported here:
https://www.redhat.com/archives/libvir-list/2012-March/msg01273.html

And we still need _part_ of that patch (the conversion from fprintf
to asprintf, in order to support %zd in the first place).
