[PATCH] Xserver crash due to ScreenPriv->SavedCursor->bits == 0 (fwd)

No discussions on this yet, so I'm giving it a second try.

David, what do you think, should this go into master before 7.5 hits the
shelf? At least I'm getting server segfaults without it with intel and
KMS, and it seems to run fine with the patch included.

OTOH I'm pretty unsure about potential memory leaks. Shouldn't be heavy,

I'd probably nuke the second part, which tries to fix the original issue
(and fails so far). Even though my corrected code looks more sane to me
than the original one.
