xwayland: Store xwl_tablet_pad in its own private key

When a slave device causes the master virtual pointer device to change
device types, the device's private data pointer
(device->public.devicePrivate) is also changed to match the type of the
slave device. This can be a problem though, as tablet pad devices will
set the device's private data pointer to their own xwl_tablet_pad
struct. This can cause us to dereference the pointer as the wrong type,
and result in a segfault:

Simple reproducer in gnome-shell: open up an Xwayland window, press some
tablet buttons, lock and unlock the screen. Repeat if it doesn't crash
the first time.

So, let's fix this by registering our own device-specific private key
for storing a backpointer to xwl_tablet_pad, so that all input devices
have their private data pointers set to their respective xwl_seat.
