Hello all,

I created a patch for SDL2 to allow SDL applications to run inside a
fullscreen shell wayland compositor. Basically, the goal of fullscreen
shell is to nest another wayland compositor underneath it (for providing
things like fast shell switching), but another use is for single
applications having complete control over the screen without needing to
implement all the DRM logic.

I made a post on the bugzilla with the patch (
https://bugzilla.libsdl.org/show_bug.cgi?id=3630) and a description of what
it does, but I've seen other patches get posted to the mailing list so I
figured I'd send it here too.

FYI, the mailing list has moved to: https://discourse.libsdl.org/ , so
might be worth reposting there :-)
