Most of the types in datatypes.[hc] depend on virObject and virClass,

Fixing this comes up as a pretty nice cleanup.

I'm not really seeing what problem needs fixing here. The libvirt_util
library doesn't depend on the datatypes file, and everything that we
build links to libvirt_util, so AFAIK there's nothing that needs fixing

libvirt_util.la doesn't depend on datatypes.h - at least it shouldn't
unless we regressed somewhere.


Yes, it doesn't, but datatypes depend on libvirt_util.  And since we
don't have any place in the whole code base where we would use
libvirt_util and not datatypes, it makes sense to put them together,
IMHO.  It's just a matter of point of view, but if you want, I can
make DATATYPES as the library and it would have libvirt_util (or
virobject, virerror etc. at least) as part of it.  But now we just
have DATATYPES_SOURCES variable that has two files inside that don't
mean anything by themselves alone.  I wanted to fix that because it
looks cleaner, works and I used to use that when building admin
library.  I'm not doing that any more, so this is really just a
clean-up that might help someone else in the future.
