[FIX] base: fix ir.logging database locking when using --log-db

Before this patch, the ir.logging's write_uid field was a many2one which
could cause a module install/update to hang when the module is changing
the res.users model schema and when this module causes to orm to warn
through the logger. (eg: declaring two res.users fields with the same
string attribute)

In such situation the transaction cursor that is processing the
res_users table alteration will be granted an exclusive postgresql lock
hence causing the ir_logging insertion to block because of the write_uid
foreign key to res_users.

This issue has never been raised by runbot as it is using a remote
database with --log-db

Note: the write_uid conversion from m2o to int was left over in commit e6a5d82

closes #32015
