Comment 119 for bug 883319

I applied the attached patch, modified from wvengen's patch in comment #112 and built against xserver-xorg-core 2:1.17.1-0ubuntu3 on Ubuntu 15.04.

This fixes the scaling behaviour on an external monitor and my cursor is now able to move within the bounds of the scaled monitor. Compared to the version against which wvengen's patch was applied, there is some additional logic in the file to be patched concerning rotation. I do not know if this patch handles rotated cases properly.
