[Xcb] xcb_atom.h with missing c++ facilities

My opinion: these are C libraries  (XCB == "X C Binding") and thus  
should have no C++ constructs in their source or headers.  It is up  
to C++ users of XCB to wrap xcb includes in extern "C" { } as needed,  
as they would do when using any other C library. If it were me, I  
would remove all #ifdef __cplusplus stuff from xcb-util and other xcb  
related repository code.
