[webkit-dev] Skipped files are going away

Sorry for the long stream of messages on this ... in case it's not
clear, all I did with this change was cut and paste the entries from
one file into the other (since the TestExpectations file syntax is a
superset of the Skipped syntax) and do some minimal de-duping so that
run-webkit-tests --lint-test-files would pass.

Different ports use different organization methods for these files,
and I didn't attempt to follow each port, nor reorganize entries that
were being skipped but really should've been failures or flakes or
something else.

I leave each port to do their own cleanup, but of course I'll be happy
to troubleshoot/answer questions, etc :).
