[webkit-efl] Updating the layout test baselines to match Ubuntu 11.10's output

Hi there. Our current set of layout test baseline images was generated
in a Ubuntu 11.04 machine (Ubuntu 11.10 was released while we were
working on DRT, so we didn't switch at the time), and they haven't been
updated very much lately.

Building the port on a Ubuntu 11.04 machine is a bit too troublesome
these days: besides building the unstable GNOME dependencies for the
libsoup backend, one needs to build the dependencies' dependencies
before that, such as GnuTLS, libnettle etc; this probably means people
working on the port have already moved on to more recent distributions.

I'd like to check with you guys if we adopt Ubuntu 11.10 (Oneiric) as
the base platform for future baselines for now; if so, I'll spend some
time next week working on bringing the current baselines and skipped
list up to date.

Note that in the future we may need to go for the nuclear option the
webkit-gtk folks have adopted and just require a certain version of
cairo, freetype and other libraries to make the layout test results be
the same in any distro.
