[PATCH wayland-web 4/9] building: update Raspberry Pi notes

From: Pekka Paalanen <pq at iki.fi>

This is more about hardware and drivers that about system specifics (we
are not covering Raspbian specifically here), so move this to the driver

The link to "FOSS drivers" was moved and points to Anholt's personal
Mesa wiki. It's probably better to let that go and just tell about the
VC4 driver which is nowadays upstream in both the kernel and Mesa, and
should be just fine.
