File 0001-Defuse-root-block.patch of Package kate

Subject: [PATCH] Defuse root block

While the main point is correct as any application running in the same
X session (not sandboxed) can use kate's capability to open a console,
we allow (even encourage) running YaST on X11 as root.
That way it's only an impact on usability.
