This is the initial version of the weston implementation of the
wl_scaler protocol extension for surface cropping and scaling. It is
based on the extension RFC version 3, written by Pekka Paalanen.
Earlier versions are:
RFC version 3 has one change: disallow zero values for dst_width and
dst_height, which is similar to a change I proposed for surface
scaling and transformations to wayland-devel a few days ago.
This initial patch set is in two parts:
1. add new weston_buffer_viewport struct for buffer transformation
and scaling, then related cleanups in working out surface size,
2. implement cropping and scaling support in GL and pixman renderers,
then add a demo client to test out these features.
The first part (by Pekka) can be pushed as is as it has nothing to do
with wl_scaler, but just cleans up related code in preparation for
Cropping and scaling has not yet been implemented in the Raspberry Pi
renderer; this will happen at some point in the future.
