Note this is a resend since my first submission was ignored. This patch
makes virtualbox work much better (things like alt+tab will work in the VM)
when run inside a Wayland session. Can we please get this merged?
The attached patch tackles a long-standing issue when running VirtualBox
under [X]wayland. By default keyboard-grabs are denied to X11 apps under
Xwayland, this causes e.g. alt-tab to not be send to the VM, but to go
to the host window-environment.
The attached patch modifies VirtualBox to send a special ClientMessage
which lets mutter knows that VirtualBox works properly with emulated
grabs and that they should be allowed.
As usual, the patch is released under the MIT license.
