errata for X server infoleak

Patches are now available to fix an information leak in the XkbSetGeometry
request of X servers. For more information, see the X.org advisory.

We experienced a slight delay getting patches out, as you can see from the
date in the patch. This is a comparatively minor issue so we didn’t rush
things until correctly signed patches were available.
