This patch adds cross-references and fixes a few formtting issues.

Hearing no objections, applied to be squashed into this commit:

7e42de651ffd ("Documentation: RCU: arrayRCU: Converted arrayRCU.txt
to arrayRCU.rst")

And with the addition of Phong's and Amol's Tested-by tags.

							Thanx, Paul
