[PATCH v2 10/26] rpmsg.txt: standardize document format




Each text file under Documentation follows a different
format. Some doesn't even have titles!

Change its representation to follow the adopted standard,
using ReST markups for it to be parseable by Sphinx:

- mark document and chapter titles;
- mark notes;
- mark literal blocks;
- adjust identation.
