test app for getting keyboard description

Calling XkbGetKeyboard() always returns NULL.

OS: Fedora 21, GNOME on Wayland

Yes, there is no way of recovering the (lossy) information that XkbGetKeyboard() provides.

Use XkbGetMap() instead, because not only does it work on Wayland, but on X11 it also provides changes which may have been applied through xmodmap.
