Patch to use the appropriate glib stat struct for the platform
When compiling gst against glib >= 2.25.0 on MSVC, a warning about incompatible
pointer types is received.
According to the glib documentation
On Windows the Microsoft C libraries have several variants of the stat struct
and stat() function with names like "_stat", "_stat32", "_stat32i64" and
"_stat64i32". The one used here is for 32-bit code the one with 32-bit size and
time fields, specifically called "_stat32".
In Microsoft's compiler, by default "struct stat" means one with 64-bit time
fields while in MinGW "struct stat" is the legacy one with 32-bit fields. To
hopefully clear up this messs, the gstdio.h header defines a type GStatBuf
which is the appropriate struct type depending on the platform and/or compiler
being used. On POSIX it is just "struct stat", but note that even on POSIX
platforms, "stat" might be a macro.
The attached patch resolves the issue by using GStatBuf in later versions of
glib. The warning subsequently goes away.
I apologize for the format of the patch.
