Bug Description

Freiza tablet.

Steps to repro.
1. Log in to unity8 as normal
2. On the Dash, tap the search icon on the top left. The OSK should appear
3. Enter a string on the keyboard

Expected result:
OSK remains while you type, focus stays with the Dash

Actual result:
On every tap on the OSK, focus is briefly moved to the OSK, and then focus restored to the Dash. This causes the OSK to bounce up & down as you type.

OSK surface has correct type: input method

I suspect that miral::WindowInfo::can_be_active should be returning false for input methods, not true.

I think mir_window_type_satellite is also handled wrongly here. I.e. the focus should remain with the parent.
