Are these patchsets ready to land?

There's a few patchsets in patchwork which I'm not entirely certain
where they're at review-wise.

Since we're at the start of a new release I'd like to clear down our
queue a bit by landing stuff that's ready to go, but while many of these
have received some review I'm not 100% if they've completely good to go.

== Weston ==

1.  Pointer locking and confinement [v4] (19 patches) - Jonas Adahl

Most of the patches in this patchset have either an R-b or A-b.  I know
this is really close to ready to go and almost went in for the release.
Is there any remaining questions or work that needs sorted out?  If not
should we go ahead and get it landed so we can get going on testing it?

2.  Pointer gesture support [v3] (3 patches) - Carlos Garnacho

These add a swipe/pinch protocol and implements demonstrative support in
a couple weston clients.  The protocol has R-b's from Jonas and Peter,
and looks like from the discussion that only reason they haven't landed
was because last time they were looked at we were in the midst of a
release.  Unless anyone has any new concerns I'd like to go ahead and
land these soon.

3.  Tablet support [v2] (13 patches) - Peter Hutterer

This set is relatively recent, but IMHO is unlikely to be terribly
controversial.  I am personally not terribly worried it carries much
risk, and if there's issues we have plenty of time to test.  How much
further time do we think this patchset needs to percolate?  Is this on
anyone's todo list to review?

== Wayland Protocols ==

1. Add the tablet protocol [v4] - Peter

I assume this goes with the tablet support for weston.  The charter for
wayland-protocols is give a home to unstable stuff once it's gotten a
little review.  The tablet protocol seems to fit this bill so while it
doesn't look like it has any R-b's, in the interest in moving things
forward here I'd like to go ahead and land this, if no one has qualms?

2. Various xdg-shell patches

xdg-shell: Add startup notification - Carlos
xdg-shell: Introduce xdg_tooltip - Jonas
xdg-shell: Turn xdg_surface into a generic base interface - Jonas
xdg-shell: Make get_popup take a xdg_surface instead of wl_surface - Jonas
xdg-shell: Bump unstable version to 6 - Jonas

Obviously Jonas can land these himself at will, so mostly I'm wondering
why they haven't landed yet.  Do they need additional review?
