Provide Xorg/net wm process ID (#7445)

Adding support for _NET_WM_PID as defined in Extended Window Manager Hints
Move verbose messaging to setupXorgTopLevelWindow method as Xorg messages should only occur when running in Xorg env.
Irrlicht returns the XDisplay as a void* and XWindow as an unsigned long so reinterpret those as the appropriate type. Also fixed a spaces for tab formating issue
