[PATCH] Add command line option to Xorg server to turn off the cursor

In our use of the Xorg server we cannot have a cursor on the screen.
We have a kiosk style app that has no user input and the cursor is
an eye sore. Changing all the individual X clients to not show a cursor
would be a huge amount of work.

Two options have been added with the default being -cursor.

-cursor                enable the cursor
-nocursor              disable the cursor

I have tested the patch against git tip of Xorg server.

Are you willing to include this functionality in the xorg server?

Are there any problems with the patch?
