[x11] Update X11 time stamp on Wayland

Assume that Xwayland's current X11 time stamp corresponds to the system
monotonic time. Unfortunately, we cannot make roundtrips to Xwayland and
we cannot query the time stamp asynchronously because it may introduce
regressions in the standalone X11 window manager.

Updates xTime(). This used to simply fetch current timestamp from the server,
but that can cause xTime() to be newer than timestamp of events that are
still in our events queue, thus e.g. making XSetInputFocus() caused by such
event to be ignored. Therefore events queue is searched for first
event with timestamp, and extra PropertyNotify is generated in order to make
sure such event is found.
void X11StandalonePlatform::updateXTime()
// NOTE: QX11Info::getTimestamp does not yet search the event queue as the old
// solution did. This means there might be regressions currently. See the
// documentation above on how it should be done properly.
