  xinit: Add a patch to generate the magic cookie for authentication
  This should fix many authentication issues (sometimes manifesting as
  a plain root weave and cursor but no apps on startx), particularly when ssh
  X11 forwarding is involved.
  This issue appears to have existed since XFree86 4.3.
