Subject: [PATCH] Add runtime option to disable starting X server as user

If the environmental variable GDM_DISABLE_USER_DISPLAY_SERVER is defined, the
X server will be started under root. The same way as if gdm was built with
--disable-user-display-server option.

This allows system to run X server under root if and only-if necessary.
