- Add gnome-session-better-handle-empty-xdg_session_type.patch
The gnome-session-check-accelerated currently detects wayland
by checking if XDG_SESSION_TYPE != "x11". More appropriate test
would be XDG_SESSION_TYPE == "wayland".

for default-waylandsession alternatives.

gnome-session-logging-to-systemd-journal-configurable.patch (not
yet upstream [bsc#979498], [bgo#768982]).

- Register GNOME with u-a handler for default.desktop
implementation, which obsoletes the change in
/etc/sysconfig/windowmanager to pick the 'default window manager'
