meta-fri2: update README
Update the meta-fri2 README to reflect the addtion of the EMGD capabilities and new machine. Changes were also made to reflect the new image names and a couple other minor cleanups. Signed-off-by: Tom Zanussi <email@example.com>

In order to build an image with BSP support for a given release, you
need to download the corresponding BSP tarball from the 'Board Support
Package (BSP) Downloads' page of the Yocto Project website.

-To enable the fri2 layer, add the fri2 MACHINE to local.conf:
+The meta-fri2 layer contains support for two different machine
+configurations. These configurations are identical except for the fact

+equivalently check out the appropriate branch from the meta-intel

+II. Special notes for building the meta-fri2 BSP layer
+The meta-fri2 layer makes use of the proprietary Intel EMGD userspace
+drivers when building the "fri2" machine (but not when building the
+"fri2-noemgd" machine). If you got the BSP from the 'BSP Downloads'
+section of the Yocto website, the EMGD binaries needed to perform the
+build will already be present in the BSP, located in the
+directory, and you can ignore the rest of this section.
+If you didn't get the BSP from the 'BSP Downloads' section of the
+Yocto website, you can download a tarball containing an rpm that
+contains the binaries and extract the binaries from that, and copy
+them to the proper location in the meta-fri2 layer.
+The following subsection describes that process in detail.
+Downloading and extracting the binaries using the EMGD Linux tarball
+The first step of the process is to download the EMGD 1.8 Driver.
+Here is the current link to the URL from which it can be downloaded:
+In the Download Now tab, select:
+Intel® architecture-based product: Linux Tar Ball
+Operating System: MeeGo* 1.2 IVI Linux* (kernel 2.6.37, X.server 1.9, Mesa 7.9)
+That will give you a large .tgz file:
+Extract the files in the tar file, which will in turn give you a
+directory named IEMGD_HEAD_Linux.
+The binaries are contained in an rpm file; you can extract the
+binaries from the rpm file using rpm2cpio and cpio:
+$ cd IEMGD_HEAD_Linux/MeeGo1.2
+$ rpm2cpio emgd-bin-2032-1.6.i586.rpm > emgd-bin-2032-1.6.i586.cpio
+$ mkdir extracted; cd extracted
+$ cpio -idv < ../emgd-bin-2032-1.6.i586.cpio
+Finally, you can copy the xorg-xserver binaries to the
+emgd-driver-bin-1.8 directory in meta-intel/common:
+$ cp -a usr/lib meta-intel/common/recipes-graphics/xorg-xserver/emgd-driver-bin-1.8
+You also need to copy the IEMGD License.txt file to the same directory:
+$ cp IEMGD_HEAD_Linux/License/License.txt meta-intel/common/recipes/xorg-xserver/emgd-driver-bin-1.8
+At this point, you should be able to build meta-fri2 images as usual.
