weston-launch patch for major/minor

According to NEWS if glibc-2.25:
* The inclusion of <sys/sysmacros.h> by <sys/types.h> is deprecated.  This
  means that in a future release, the macros “major”, “minor”, and “makedev”
  will only be available from <sys/sysmacros.h>.

The same error occurred on 1.12.0 for me.

Attached patch should be applied by all weston ebuilds.

This is fixed in 3.0.0. It was addressed by upstream.

Please either backport or stabilize 3.0.0, your decision.
