[RFC PATCH v2 0/1] Color manager calibration protocol

This is the second version of my color manager calibration protocol, biggest change is that I now use a surface this surface is set up in a similar way to the touch screen calibration protocol. Another big change is more (and hopefully better) documentation and the last big one is a new way to set the calibration curve (plus some info needed to use it). There are some other smaller changes many regarding formatting.

One thing I am not entirely satisfied with is the way I am setting the calibration curve but decided to not wait for a brilliant idea to strike me out of the blue and put it out here so more eyeballs can have a look. And more brains can think about it.

For those wondering why this is needed see here: https://www.argyllcms.com/doc/monitorcontrols.html although with the color manager protocol the first reason becomes moot (although it wouldn't surprise me if a compositor would only implements this protocol and not that one for reasons of simplicity or memory/disk space savings) the other 2 are still valid.

If this is seen as acceptable I will see if I can implement it in Weston, although seeing as my day job is something completely different (doing this as a hobbyist) and I am actually a physicist not a software engineer I will probably need some help with that.
