Major re-organization of the sgml docs. They are now converted from
linuxdoc to docbook and rely on the docbook2x series of tools, so your
build environments need to be updated.

git tag: xorg-docs-1.4

Changes since xorg-docs-1.3:

Adam Jackson (2):
      Fix distcheck.
      Bump to 1.4.

Alan Coopersmith (2):
      Update XFixes protocol spec to match XFixes 4.0
      Typo fixes in XFixes protocol spec

David Nusinow (14):
      Actually install the docs that we build
      Remove old big new features and add XACE info
      * Document autoconfig improvements
      * Modular isn't new any more. Don't pretend that it is.
      No extension protocol updates of note (just bugfixes) this release
      Reorder platform-specific fixes because I'm biased
      * Modular isn't new any more
      Missing close bracket. Yay structured text.
      Format new additions so that we don't need titles for each bulletpoint
      Comment out "Other extensions" section, which we don't need this time
      Update driver list
      Rearrange configuration section. X -configure is the preferred method now.
