[PATCH v2 29/31] io_ordering.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:

- Add a title;
- mark literal-blocks as such.

+Ordering I/O writes to memory-mapped addresses

 On some platforms, so-called memory-mapped I/O is weakly ordered.  On such
 platforms, driver writers are responsible for ensuring that I/O writes to
 memory-mapped addresses on their device arrive in the order intended.  This is
