single-pixel-buffer: new protocol



This protocol allows creating single-pixel buffers. It can be useful
to avoid having to allocate a real buffer just to fill it with the
same pixel value. Some use-cases include drawing background surfaces
or toplevel decorations.

<description summary="single pixel buffer factory">
This protocol extension allows clients to create single-pixel buffers.
Compositors supporting this protocol extension should also support the
viewporter protocol extension. Clients may use viewporter to scale a
single-pixel buffer to a desired size.
Warning! The protocol described in this file is currently in the testing
phase. Backward compatible changes may be added together with the
corresponding interface version bump. Backward incompatible changes can
only be done by creating a new major version of the extension.

Create a single-pixel buffer from four 32-bit RGBA values.
Unless specified in another protocol extension, the RGBA values use
pre-multiplied alpha.
The width and height of the buffer are 1.
