[PATCH for-5.2] configure: Make "does libgio work" test pull in some act

From: Peter Maydell
Subject: [PATCH for-5.2] configure: Make "does libgio work" test pull in some actual functions
Date: Mon, 16 Nov 2020 10:46:17 +0000

In commit 76346b6264a9b01979 we tried to add a configure check that
the libgio pkg-config data was correct, which builds an executable
linked against it.  Unfortunately this doesn't catch the problem
(missing static library dependency info), because a "do nothing" test
source file doesn't have any symbol references that cause the linker
to pull in .o files from libgio.a, and so we don't see the "missing
symbols from libmount" error that a full QEMU link triggers.

(The ineffective test went unnoticed because of a typo that
effectively disabled libgio unconditionally, but after commit
3569a5dfc11f2 fixed that, a static link of the system emulator on
Ubuntu stopped working again.)

Improve the gio test by having the test source fragment reference a
g_dbus function (which is what is indirectly causing us to end up
wanting functions from libmount).

Signed-off-by: Peter Maydell <peter.maydell@linaro.org>
The ideal thing here might perhaps be to force the linker to
pull in everything in the library rather than trusting that
this particular function is sufficient to trigger the need
for libmount functions, but annoyingly gcc and clang
have different command line options to do that.
