[webkit-dev] Moving tests out of platform directories

Starting this week, I plan to move layout tests out of the LayoutTests/platform directories. The goal is to have the LayoutTests/platform directories contain only results (and TestExpectation files). This avoids the creation of test results in directories like platform/mac/platform/mac.

The plan is:
1. Move directories of platform tests out of platform directories into the top-level LayoutTests directory (or some subdirectory as appropriate)
2. Skip those tests on non-applicable platforms via TestExpectations
3. Change check-webkit-style to warn about new tests added in platform directories
4. Possibly have run-webkit-tests fail with an error when it finds any test in a platform directory
