I disagree.  The definition of the VIR_ONCE_GLOBAL_INIT macro uses
virErrorPtr, which means if we don't include virerror.h here, _every_ .c
file that uses one-shot initialization would then have to pull in
virerror.h.  It turns out that all existing clients already do, or we
would have hit a compilation error sooner; thus this patch is really
only mandatory for the new client later in this series - but that commit
has already been nack'd on design grounds.  Still, requiring a client .c
file to do extra includes just to use the macro makes it harder than
necessary, so I'm still in favor of making  virthread.h self-contained.

ACK, after updating the commit message to explain why.  I've pushed 1-3
in this series.  Like Dan, I agree that the remainder of the series
needs a step back to figure out what the real design goal is, before
doing any more refactoring.
