This is *mainly* because kwin reformatted the whole code in master but
not in 4.6, so any attempt to merge gives conflicts in those files.

I just merged 4.6 into master again. I checked the 16 commits pending
merge and they were all was already backported or forward-ported
manually (via cherry-pick); so I could just resolve all conflicts to
the code in master.
