[vlc-devel] [RFC] removing legacy threading for Windows

On Windows, we have no less than two mutex and three condition variable 
implementations, of which only one each are actually _correct_. This clutters 
the run-time quite a bit, especially with the inline functions involved.

I'd suggest we remove the legacy/broken spin lock implementations. VLC does 
not work on Win9x anymore anyway (bot even counting that Win98 is over 10 
years and 4 major releases old, and many years past support).
