Public bug reported:

In Unity-2d in MultiMonitor we need to set Struts (for the left panel)
in the middle of the working area. This means that the specced
_NET_WORKAREA is not enough since it can only report one rectangle and
we end up with two disconnected working areas once we add a vertical
strut in the left of the secondary monitor. For that we have the
propietary _UNITY_NET_WORKAREA_REGION atom that returns multiple

This patch adds support for this atom to
QDesktopWidget::availableGeometry so the correct geometry is reported
when using Unity-2d
