Add support for disabling extensions through environment variables

This is a patch we have in openSUSE for quite some time that makes it possible to disable an extension with an environment variable.

For instance: export XLIB_SKIP_EXT_MIT_SHM=1

This was apparently needed for some specific app crashing with some extension.

Patch was written by David Reveman.

Patch for xcb

The previous patch was for Xlib. However most applications today link directly against libxcb.
To be any useful we'd have to add this to both.
