The X settings should probably be loaded lazily just like the
rest. Just check if the registry key exists already to find out if you
need to get the value from X.

Another possibility is to have the X driver set the registry values on
startup; this may actually be cleaner since then you don't need to add
new calls to the USER driver. Also I'm not convinced there are many
cases where we actually need to get proper values from X; what cases
do you have in mind?

Not really; a few minor issues but I'll fix them when committing the
