[SECURITY] [DLA 218-1] xorg-server security update

Package        : xorg-server
Version        : 2:1.7.7-18+deb6u2
CVE ID         : CVE-2015-0255

Olivier Fourdan discovered that missing input validation in the Xserver's
handling of XkbSetGeometry requests may result in an information leak or
denial of service.

This upload to Debian squeeze-lts fixes the issue by not swapping
XkbSetGeometry data in the input buffer any more and checking strings'
length against request size.
