Re: [libvirt] [PATCH v2] maint: Improve use of configmake.h on mingw

This reverts commit fed58d83c60ff1c20292856bec006577788b7494 ("build:
Fix checkpoint_conf on mingw"), now that we don't have to worry about
header inclusion ordering issues.

v1 was 'build: Solve mingw build clash with DATADIR', and dead on arrival,
so it was reverted shortly after.

It turns out that pragma push_macro isn't good enough (you have to
do it before EVERY site that includes winsock2.h, including those that
do so indirectly by including gnulib's replacement unistd.h), so it's
better to just fix gnulib from the get-go instead of trying to work
around it at every internal spot.

This time, I've actually tested mingw locally rather than lazily
relying on jenkins to do the mingw validation work for me; I used:

make -f Makefile.ci ci-build fedora-rawhide CI_CONFIGURE="mingw32-configure"

But since I botched up v1, I'll still wait for a review before pushing

Gnulib changes:
b5e7a0d configmake: Avoid namespace pollution issue on mingw.
