Multi monitor HIDPI in X11 compatibility mode

If it needs Wayland, then it might be something that should go into the
for the Wakefield project ... perhaps that is what you are intending here ?
Until that project adds support back into main line for Wayland's X11 compat
mode we only support running on X.org, so there won't be a wayland
server to query,
so this fix can't help mainline today.
I presume this code would still report integer scales ?
My understanding is Wayland by design does not support fractional scales.
