Bug#859474: Move mutter-restart-helper out to mutter-common

Package: mutter
Version: 3.22.3-2
Severity: normal


At the moment, mutter-restart-helper is included in the mutter package
but this tool can be useful from outside mutter (e.g. GNOME Shell uses
it via Meta.restart() (see [1]), so it would be probably a good idea
to move it to mutter-common instead.

We have been shipping this change in Endless for a while already (see
[2]) and I think it would be nice to have it included in debian, as
any other distro that might want to install just mutter-common would
benefit of that.
