Thanks, I merged the docs as of 67bdd1668e6a033eb5520105946ebb651f3adff2
with a slight bit of formatting cleanup.

Interestingly enough, it seems we do *not* use this in Linux, instead
going the opal events and OPAL_GET_MSG call.

In fact... I can't see that we ever used it.

Does FreeBSD use it? Does it work? It *looks* like it does at least.
