Description

For details see https://fate.suse.com/319335

Feature is set to "Validation"= Done!

Testcase:

First use vncpasswd tool to create passwd file.
vncpasswd /tmp/file.passwd
Password:
Verify:
Would you like to enter a view-only password (y/n)? y
Password:
Verify:
Old version wouldn't ask you for the view-only password, new version does.
Next start VNC server that uses the file for authentication. Let's start empty Xvnc with xev running inside:
Xvnc :1 -SecurityTypes=VncAuth -PasswordFile=/tmp/file.passwd &
DISPLAY=:1 xev
Then connect to it with your favorite VNC viewer. You can do it using vncviewer:
vncviewer localhost:1 -SecurityTypes=VncAuth
You will be asked to enter password. If you enter the first password, you can move mouse and type in the xev window and you should see that the events are being delivered in the xev output. If you enter the view-only password, your mouse and keyboard should be ignored.
