[PATCH:libX11] Clarify requirements in XRestackWindows man page

The required common parent window is not specified in the arguments,
just implied as the parent of the first window in the list.

The man page was confusing me, since I couldn't figure out which window was
specified to be the parent window, but from looking at the server code in
os/dispatch.c & os/windows.c, I believe this is correct - or at least matches
the current implementation.
