X.Org uses git and everything git makes itself very difficult
to find (or perhaps it's just me against git!)
I found this minor enhancement in X.org sources (MIT license)
that we may want to carry too:

http://cgit.freedesktop.org/xorg/lib/libX11/commit/?id=83ce4daefdf544f801c7d666c89162690a36ce41

They are just comments though, nothing important.

(Thanks to mst@ for the link.)
FWIW, the header is only used here:
hwpfilter/source/hcode.cpp

Looks pretty easy to just replace it with the XFree86
version.
