[PATCH 0/7] asprintf v3

This version adopts the middle road, as I suggested earlier today and we
discussed on #xorg-devel IRC today.

To the linker, the ABI will export the function Xasprintf() from the
X server to modules.   To programmers, they simply have to include
Xprintf.h (or os.h which includes it), and can then write code using
asprintf(), and let autoconf & Xprintf.h determine whether it should
mapped by a #define to Xasprintf() or simply use the platform's libc

There's a bonus copyright notice update tacked on the front, so that
the main asprintf() patch can update the COPYING file correctly.

 [PATCH 1/7] Sun's copyrights now belong to Oracle
 [PATCH 2/7] Add asprintf() implementation for platforms without it
 [PATCH 3/7] Convert existing Xprintf style calls to asprintf style
 [PATCH 4/7] Convert hw/xfree86/parser code to use asprintf() calls
 [PATCH 5/7] Convert alloc+sprintf pairs into asprintf() & XNFasprintf() calls
 [PATCH 6/7] Replace alloc+strcpy+strcat with asprintf() & XNFasprintf() calls
 [PATCH 7/7] Convert cvt code to use XNFasprintf()

I've left off a bunch of previously offered Reviewed-by's on patches
that have changed quite a bit since you reviewed them.
