[libvirt] [PATCH v3 5/6] util: Introduce virFileWaitForAccess



Since we have a number of places where we workaround timing issues with
devices, attributes (files in general) not being available at the time
of processing them by calling usleep in a loop for a fixed number of
tries, we could as well have a utility function that would do that.
Therefore we won't have to duplicate this ugly workaround even more.
