Display info for OpenGL usage

For the time being we don't have about:gfx yet. We should display some info on the error console indicating when the OpenGL layer manager is being initialized succesfully, and some data about what OpenGL version is being used to assist in debugging issues.

The attached patch gives some information, for example on my laptop it outputs:

OpenGL LayerManager Initialized Succesfully.
Version: 3.0.0
Vendor: NVIDIA Corporation
Renderer: GeForce GT 230M/PCI/SSE2

Display info for OpenGL usage v2

Hopefully this improves string usage.

I think that you should just use .get() here.

r=me otherwise!

:(
I wasn't on the CC list nor the assignee. I simply missed it.

Can we remove this now that there's a "Graphics" section (added by bug 586046?) in about:support?
Having this message displayed in the Error Console each time a window is opened is noisy.
