Implement XEmbed protocol
Add a static QWindow::fromWinId(WId id) constructor which can be used to create a QWindow object representing windows created by other processes. Then, QWindow::setParent() can be used to embed a window into a foreign window socket and QWindow::setTransientParent() to stick the current window on top of a foreign window. The changes in the QtWidgets module ensure that the focus chain (TAB navigation) correctly works when a QtWidgets-based window is embedded into another application. As far as the platform implementation is concerned, this commit only implements the embedding functionality in the XCB plugin. So, this is roughly equivalent to the Qt4 QX11EmbedWidget functionality.
