documentation: yocto-project-qs, yocto-project-ref - package re-org
Reorganization of the packages section in the YP Quick Start. These are now ordered still by distro but the listed packages have been culled down to just the needed ones to run an image on QEMU with graphical support. A corresponding section in the reference manual now provides the comprehensive list of packages for all supported distros. The section in the reference manual is broken down by distro and by function. Finally, four new variables were introduced to track the essential packages for each of the distros. The variables are defined in poky.ent and follow the form <distro>_HOST_PACKAGES_ESSENTIAL. This will make it so we don't have to maintain this list of essential packages in multiple places.
