[vlc-devel] [PATCH]Win32 screensaver disable change part II

In year 2008 I sent patch that changed Windows screensaver disable behavior.
That patch was horrible, and after few years I tried making it better.

The issues it should solve are same (there are limited Windows accounts
which cannot change SPI_GETLOWPOWERTIMEOUT settings and if VLC crashes the
original settings aren't returned) but now there isn't code duplication.

It isn't perfect code wise, since I have NO clue how to create thread
without parameters using vlc thread functions. Something like

create_thread (function_to_run, id)

would be perfect for this, since I don't pass any parameters. Also I ain't
sure if cancel works with vlc_thread_create, so it might work incorrectly.
