[PATCH wayland] client: add wl_proxy_get_version function

In some scenarii, a component will obtain a reference to a proxy
object created by another component. It may then be necessary to
check the interface version of the proxy object at run-time to
determine if a certain interface request is supported by the proxy

For instance, a media player GUI can pass a wl_surface to a video
playback library. If the video is rotated, the library will want to
use wl_surface.set_buffer_transform, which is only available in
version 2 of wl_surface.
