We'll leave a phase-less description field too, so:

  * All phases description
  * MPI Install description
  * Test build description
  * Test run description

No. Still one description per phase, but if description is
empty for a subsequent phase, we copy over the description
from the earlier phase.

So currently, if I set description in MPI Install and I'm in
Test run view in reporter.php, then filtering on
"description" assumes I'm looking for a description in Test
run. This is a problem because I did not set description in
Test run. I need the MPI Install's description.

No, but this is certainly a related ticket.
