superfluous/incorrect warning in Settings dialog

When enabling '2D Video Acceleration' on Linux guests through the Settings dialog, it should immediately tell me this isn't yet supported on Linux guests instead of telling me the setting isn't optimal (which doesn't matter since it isn't (yet) supported anyway).

It tells me the following:

'On the Display page, you have assigned less than 19 MB of video memory which is the minimum amount required for HD Video to be played efficiently.'.

However, it should read:

'On the Display page, you have 2D Video Acceleration enabled. As 2D Video Acceleration is supported on Windows guests only, this feature will be disabled.'.
