[sane-devel] [janitorial] sanei_thread "fixes" and Fedora 26 CI builds

I've put my leading whitespaces proposal on hold for a few days and
started fixing compiler warnings from the Alpine 3.6 musl builds.
Alpine uses the musl C library and that means stuff is sometimes a bit
different. Which is a Good Thing! Its pthread "idiosyncracies" led to
a pile of [-Wint-conversion] warnings that hilighted some preconceived
notions in the sanei_thread.c code and a large number of backends using
The backends have been fixed up now and the sanei_thread.c code patched
up to a point where it should work with all integer type based pthread_t
implementations. The configure script now checks for this and disables
pthread support if it doesn't find an integer pthread_t.
So for folks using musl, which uses a struct __pthread *, that means
your "multi-threading" support will fall back to multi-processing.
Patches to sanei_thread.c are welcome :-)
@Rolf> Can you take a look at 73861ea, please? It affects the pixma
backend. I think it's fine but I'd like an extra pair of eyes
On a different front, Fedora 26 was released on 2017-07-11 so I've
added a CI builder for that as well. The Fedora 25 build will stay
around for a bit longer yet, but probably not that long.
Hope this helps,
