From: Yuri Pudgorodskiy <yur@virtuozzo.com>

mingw-glib uses helper process to assist gspawn() api. There are two
versions of helpers, one with main() and another with WinMain() startup
routines.

Whenever gspawn() detects consoleless environment (and qemu-ga is running
in such environment as Win32 service), it chooses helper with main()
instead of WinMain. It is done by name, e.g.
gspawn-win32-helper-console.exe vs gspawn-win32-helper.exe

Running console-aware application like any win32 console apps from main()
crt initalized process results in redirection of stdout to console created
in crt startup instead of parent-provided handle connected to subprocess
pipe. Thus, stdout/stderr redirection do not work correctly.

The patch makes WinMain()'s version of helper be used as the only helper
shipped with qemu-ga package. Using only win32 helper ensures console
is created before any redirection and fixes stdout/stderr redirection
issue.
