I have zero context for this patch, but the subject piqued my curiosity,
since I know it is nigh impossible to upload an XKB keymap with current
xcb-xkb. And indeed, it seems you only use XKB here for the controls,
which include some repeat and accessibility info, but not the main
The main calls are for the core protocol keymap.
So the sentence "If host X server supports XKB extension, this patch
uses xcb-xkb to apply its keymap in Xephyr." should be adjusted to only
talk about XKB controls and not the entire keymap, I think.
