Dear list,

We ended up with a few embarassing, critical and generally unsavory
regressions in the 1.2.1 weston release and I'm doing a quick 1.2.2
follow up here.  In particular, we had

  - Crash on fast click on titlebar

  - Included private config.h from SDK header compositor.h

  - Testsuite and some clients broken on 32-bit system because of
    AC_SYS_LARGEFILE and missing #include config.h

  - evdev device cleanup crashes when used for error recovery or when
    rejecting joysticks, due to uninitialized list.

Aside from those, I've tried to avoid picking too many bug fixes in
the interest of making 1.2.2 the release 1.2.1 should have been and
avoid breaking something else.  Having said that, I did pick up the
recent xwm fixes, the fix for in-place touch screen coordinate
calibration, Stanislavs glDrawElements vs GL_UNSIGNED_INT issue and
the fbdev compile breakage when using --diable-egl.

The release is on http://wayland.freedesktop.org/releases.html as
usual, SHA1 sums are:
