[PATCH wayland-web 3/9] building: update AMD driver notes

From: Pekka Paalanen <pq at iki.fi>

AMDGPU is the new kernel driver and it works fine I believe.

Remove notes about specific kernel version or card models. No-one should
run kernels that old anymore, and the card models depend on whether you
need OpenGL acceleration or not.
