[Spice-devel] [PATCH spice-protocol] vd_agent.h: add a VD_AGENT_CAP_SPARSE_MONITORS_CONFIG capability (rhbz#881072)

Currently the agent expect a monitor config to be continuous. If the user has
3 monitors (3 spice display windows) open and tries to disable the 2nd one,
then instead of the 2nd one being closed, the 3th one ends up closed.

To be able to fix this we need to be able to send a sparse monitor config
to the agent. A monitor being disabled in such a sparse config is simply
represented by its width and height being 0 in its VDAgentMonConfig.

Since old versions of the agent won't be capable of dealing with such a
0x0 sized monitor, this patch adds a new VD_AGENT_CAP_SPARSE_MONITORS_CONFIG
capability to signal to the client that the agent understands this, and
the client should only send sparse monitor configs to agents with this
