Hi,

I don't think we should change this one at all. As you see from the
copyright, this code was copied from elsewhere. It was definitely not
written under the assumption that "Wayland is MIT licensed" which we
use as the reason to be able to change the license text without
re-licensing.

cursor-data.h was renamed from cursor_data.c in
0371668dcca5aa29c0fc4b59b974e40bcf073563 and the original commit is

commit 9ce9336c5704510a3f5a57ef377870764217f2ec

    cursor: Add a default cursor theme
    
    This theme is loaded when the specified cursor theme can not be found.
    
    These cursors are extracted from the xorg sources and transformed into
    raw ARGB data by a small helper program (commited separately).


Thanks,
pq
