xcursors: Alias existing cursor defaults to cursor-spec cursor names

Consolatis requested to merge Consolatis/wlroots:fix/cursor_names into master

wlr_xcursor_get_resize_name() returns cursor-spec [1] based names but the default cursor icons shipped in include/xcursor/cursor_data.h use traditional X cursor names instead.

Compositors that use wlr_xcursor_get_resize_name() to resolve an edge to a cursor icon name may thus be unable to render appropriate cursor icons for users that don't have a cursor-spec compliant cursor theme installed on their system or have it installed in an unusual place.

This patch adds cursor-spec cursor icon name aliases.


Edit: This MR can be tested by observing the resize cursor icon when using an invalid cursor theme path like XCURSOR_PATH=/tmp/ sway
