[libvirt] [PATCH] Revert "virthread: Introduce virRWLockInitPreferWriter"



This reverts commit 328bd24443d2a345a5832ee48ebba0208f8036ea.

As it turns out, this is not portable and very Linux & glibc
specific. Worse, this may lead to not starving writers on Linux
but everywhere else. Revert this and if the starvation occurs
resolve it.
