Heterogeneous outputs

Philipp Zabel requested to merge pH5/weston:heterogeneous-outputs into main

Implement the prerequisites for supporting heterogeneous heads and outputs that are described in #268 (comment 605126).

The weston_output::destroy callback and the new weston_head::backend_id opaque pointer are used to let backends identify their outputs and heads, respectively.

To avoid breaking the remoting and pipewire plugins, they had to be stopped from overwriting the weston_output::destroy pointer.

Note that this still doesn't allow the code in compositor/main.c to identify which backend a head belongs to, to choose the correct output configuration code. That is why !578 (merged) will add a weston_head::backend pointer.
