libXi 1.4.4 comes with two memory fixes that can cause crashes in clients.
Commit "Handle unknown device classes" can only be triggered when libXi
1.4.x runs against the git X server. If the XIQueryDevice() reply contained
classes unknown to libXi, we didn't allocate memory for these classes and
ended up overwriting valid ones.

Commit "Fix duplicate sizeof in copy_classes" fixes a typo, instead of 
malloc(X * sizeof(Y)) the code called malloc(sizeof(X * sizeof(Y))). This
could lead to memory corruption.

Peter Hutterer (8):
      man: Fix formatting in XGetFeedbackControl
      man: fix typo in XIQueryDevice man page
      Handle unknown device classes.
      man: fix #include for XIGrabButton
      man: XIGrabButton returns error codes, not status codes
      man: passive grabs return the number of failed modifier combinations
      Fix duplicate sizeof in copy_classes
