Support background fallback on HiDPI
This change is a super hacky way of supporting the fallback desktop background (without caja) on HiDPI displays. It does this by doing two things: providing a function for scaled-up background surfaces using cairo_scale; and triggering a change signal when the entire background schema is re-loaded, and so triggering a redraw.
