xwayland: Don't process cursor warping without an xwl_seat

Unfortunately, on my machine Xwayland immediately crashes when I try to
start it. gdb backtrace:

This appears to be the result of xwl_cursor_confined_to() and
xwl_screen_get_default_seat(). While not against protocol, mutter ends
up sending xdg_output before wl_seat. xwl_screen_get_default_seat()
makes the naïve assumption that we always have a valid seat, we end up
returning a pointer to the empty list itself instead of an actual seat
and causing ourselves to segfault.

So, actually return NULL in xwl_screen_get_default_seat() if the seat
list is empty, and skip any pointer confinement processing in
xwl_cursor_confined_to() when we don't have a seat setup yet.
