    Fix input focus for KDM's dialogs when GrabInput is not active

which is not at all related to the screenlocker architecture. It's KDM.

A bit further down there's even (shock! horror! :])

    Backport Aurorae fixes from Plasma 5.2

That is KWin, again totally unrelated to the lock screen architecture. And that patch went in without approval by the maintainer and without review. My reaction was: "I'm surprised by that. There won't be any more 4.11 releases unless there are security issues."

Overall it just proves the point: you have no idea about that old code and need hand holding. I hope nobody wastes their time by hand holding you.
