[Xcb] [PATCH xcb-util-*] Use an absolute URL for the m4 submodule

A relative submodule URL requires m4 duplicates relative to every fork or local
mirror of this module.  To select a different protocol with an absolute
submodule URL, the url.<base>.insteadOf configuration option can be used.

I give it at try.  Please consider it.  This applies to all util-* modules.
