Insert spaces when appending lines from the control file description.

The code was concatenating all the lines from the control file's
description section after trimming leading and trailing space. So words
were run on together, making it hard to read.

Handle multiple abi versions.

Some drivers will support multiple Xserver abi versions, and so will
have Depends: xorg-video-abi-11 | xorg-video-abi-12 | xorg-video-abi-13.

The previous code would simply return the last in the list. This patch
makes it return the full list, and then verify the xserver abi is
contained in that list.

Allow experimental drivers to fallback to the description from debian/control

This is necessary so we can include the current release notes for users
to look at.

When displaying list of video drivers, sort them alphabetically.

This ensures consistent display, and ensures the nvidia experimental
drivers will sort *after* the nvidia current driver. This will help
minimize user confusion.
