[slackware-security] Slackware 15.0 xorg-server-xwayland (SSA:2022-271-01)

New xorg-server-xwayland packages are available for Slackware 15.0
to fix security issues.


Here are the details from the Slackware 15.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/xorg-server-xwayland-21.1.4-i586-2_slack15.0.txz:  Rebuilt.
  xkb: switch to array index loops to moving pointers.
  xkb: add request length validation for XkbSetGeometry.
  xkb: swap XkbSetDeviceInfo and XkbSetDeviceInfoCheck.
  I hadn't realized that the xorg-server patches were needed (or applied
  cleanly) to Xwayland. Thanks to LuckyCyborg for the kind reminder. :-)
