[RFC] Cursor sprites as regular surfaces

Here's an RFC for implementing the cursor sprites as regular surfaces
change we have been talking about. This removes the input_device.attach
request and adds two new ones: set_pointer_surface and set_hotspot.

Each client can set a pointer surface that is displayed when it has
pointer focus. The position of this surface will be the cursor location
offset by the hotspot set by set_hotspot. For now surface transformation
is ignored.

surface_attach has the same behavior as with regular surfaces, i.e., sx
and sy are relative to the surfaces top-left corner. The hotspot is
updated though, so that the cursor position does not move.

One of the changes to clients/window.c is done to test surface_attachs
to a pointer surface with sx,sy != 0 and is not really necessary.

This set does not implement these changes on wayland backend. It does
include the two fixes I just sent to the list.
