Add XInitThreads to X11_CreateDevice.

The nVidia driver requires XInitThreads to be called for it to work in multithreaded mode. Sam also
says that the overhead for this is small enough that it should just be done by default at this point.
If this causes issues, we can add a hint later to enable / disable this call.
