Backport fix for exposing core and ES contexts on Xwayland to the next stable release

The current stable Xorg server release, 1.17.2, doesn’t support the
creation of a core profile OpenGL context, or of a GLES context, only
exposing compatibility profiles instead (so 3.0 on Mesa, see [1]).

This is a request to cherry-pick commit 2d719433 [2] from master to the
next 1.17 branch release.
