this is an Xwayland patch, and as Xwayland lives in the xserver
repository, this patch should be sent to
xorg-devel at lists.freedesktop.org

CC'ing wayland-devel@ would be nice, though.

Please, use git-send-email next time to send the patch inline. It is a
bit difficult to review as an attachment.
