recipes-graphics: Add more detailed SUMMARY and DESCRIPTIONS
Add more detailed SUMMARY and DESCRIPTIONS to various graphics and graphics related components. I've recently gotten question from users what something is, or why it was needed.. this should go a long way toward answering those questions. Many of the descriptions were taken directly from the upstream location, where one was not available the Debian packages were consulted for information. Signed-off-by: Mark Hatle <>
