Hi all!

Current master branch is failing to compile under clang.
The problem was introduced in this commit (applied 4 hours ago).

lib/vlog.c:618:12: error: reading variable 'log_fd' requires holding mutex
'log_file_mutex' [-Werror,-Wthread-safety-analysis]
return log_fd;

Based on the error I'd suggest reverting the patch and reworking it to 
safely acquire/release log_file_mutex.

All the best,

- Dave
