These seem all "obviously correct", so I'm rolling them up into
one patch.

These commands all relate to System V IPC, so point the reader
at the relevant Section 7 page provided by the Linux man-pages
project.

Explicitly mention "System V" in the description, so that readers do not
get confused with the POSIX IPC mechanisms.

Earlier, I patched various pages to consistently use EXAMPLE as a
section heading, rather than EXAMPLES.  (At that time, both headings
occurred in util-linux, with roughly equal frequency.)

Since then, I've observed that EXAMPLES is the more common usage
across a large corpus of manual pages. So, in Linux the man-pages
project, I switched to using EXAMPLES also. This patch makes the same
change for util-linux.
