[PATCH v2 30/31] iostats.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:

- promote main title level;
- mark literal blocks as such;
- Add blank lines to avoid Sphinx errors.

     Reads and writes which are adjacent to each other may be merged for
