[platforms/x11/standalone] Use intel swap events by default

Activate intel swap events by default if available. They were hidden behind an
environmental variable because of some critical release blocking issue years

Manual testing indicates that there are no issues anymore with this extension.
Since it allows us to use swap events with MESA drivers for optimized repaints
enable swap events by default again.

For now leave a modified environment variable to switch back to using no swap
events easily.
