[PATCH weston 0/2 v5] DRM lease support

Functional no change since last version, just rebased to take into account
clone series.

Patch series that adds support for DRM leases.

DRM leases is a method developed by Keith Packard to allow other application 
manage the output of a display/VR, while a DRM master is already owning
the outputs resources. A more thorough explanation and terminology can
be found at [1]. libdrm [2] and kernel [3] have already gained support.

Protocol support can be found at [4].

Initially this was a single patch but decided to split into series to
accommodate a demo client as well.

Changes since v4:
- rebased in order to get connector id from from drm_head

Changes since v3:
- rename lease with leasable to avoid confusion (Philipp Zabel)
- added client protocol headers / protocol to BUILD_SOURCES otherwise the
client example can't be built due to missing client headers

Changes since v2:
- rebased as drm_output_disable() has been changed due to atomic changes
- deferring the lease when the output can't be disabled due to a pending 
- client blocks until it receives a 'created'/'failed' event when
deferring the lease.
- fix a potential NULL pointer if failing to get an encoder in the client
- provide correct link to protocol
- use lessee_id instead of lease_id as per libdrm/kernel terminology

Changes since v1:
- accommodate changes due to protocol changes
- use enable/disabled for the output instead of destroy/update_outputs (Daniel Stone)
- split into a series, added a client example
- forcing a repaint when giving the lease and not doing a modeset if the output
has been leased avoids blank switching between the lesor and lessee
