[PATCH xf86-video-dummy 0/6] Cleanups and RandR 1.2 support

This series is a counterproposal to Nicolas's patch "dummy: Add support for
custom resolutions (RandR 1.2)" [1]

This version allows using xrandr's --fb option to resize the screen rather than
having to try to create fake modes that pass validation against made-up hardware
constraints.  It also allows resizing the framebuffer all the way up to
32767x34767 (assuming malloc succeeds).

I didn't try to test the interaction of that with DGA and opted instead to just
get rid of DGA support.  Let me know if you think DGA in xf86-video-dummy is
actually useful for something and I can try to see if that makes sense.
