Create common video connector language

Description

Haiku's accelerants should speak the same language on video connector types. This would enable the screen preflet to someday know what each attached monitor is (something handy when we get multi-screen support someday)

It looks like GET_MONITOR_INFO was never used... might be a great spot to add display information:

$ grep -R B_GET_MONITOR_INFO src/servers/app/
src/servers/app/drawing/interface/local/AccelerantHWInterface.cpp:		= (get_monitor_info)fAccelerantHook(B_GET_MONITOR_INFO, NULL);

$ grep -R B_GET_MONITOR_INFO src/add-ons/accelerants/
