[oe] [PATCH 0/3] Clean up X init (oe-core vs meta-oe)

* Less confusing duplication between oe-core and meta-oe
  (currently just adding meta-oe to BBLAYERS completely
  changes X init because meta-oe provides another version of
* Make it easier to keep X init in sync between systemd and sysvinit

The xserver-nodm-init patch merges in functionality from
xserver-nodm-init-2.0 from meta-oe: The combined "Xserver" script
deprecates the ones in x11-common (oe-core) and xserver-common
(meta-oe), and should work with other parts of either x11-common
or xserver-common. In particular these differences still exist:
 * Xsession files are different
 * xserver-common generates X binary name and arguments at runtime

I believe the xserver-nodm-init-2.0 recipe can be removed after this
patch with one caveat: The people who assume they will get
xserver-common (meta-oe) without explicitly asking for it will be
surprised. The x11 packagegroup has "VIRTUAL-RUNTIME_xserver_common"
selection which will work but it does not seem to be commonly used.

I'd be happy to take advice on how to minimize problems from the above as
well as on how to handle the version problems: should I bump the recipe
version above 2.0?

Sorry about the timing wrt M3 freeze: This consumed much more time
than planned. We can postpone if it looks too scary at this point.
