xwayland: Fix use after free of cursors

Sometimes, Xwayland will try to use a cursor that has just been freed,
leading to a crash when trying to access that cursor data either in
miPointerUpdateSprite() or AnimCurTimerNotify().

CheckMotion() updates the pointer's cursor based on which xwindow
XYToWindow() returns, and Xwayland implements its own xwl_xy_to_window()
to fake a crossing to the root window when the pointer has left the
Wayland surface but is still within the xwindow.

But after an xwindow is unrealized, the last xwindow used to match the
xwindows is cleared so two consecutive calls to xwl_xy_to_window() may
not return the same xwindow.

To avoid this issue, update the last_xwindow based on enter and leave
notifications instead of xwl_xy_to_window(), and check if the xwindow
found by the regular miXYToWindow() is a child of the known last
xwindow, so that multiple consecutive calls to xwl_xy_to_window()
return the same xwindow, being either the one found by miXYToWindow()
or the root window.
