[Skiboot] [PATCH 17/18] doc: Fix some errors in platforms-and-cpus

Apollo was a P7 platform, not P8, and we don't support P7 any more.
VESNIN is a P8 platform. Garrison uses the P8NVL chip, few other minor

There's stilll a bunch of systems missing from here, but eh. I also added
a note about P7 support being dropped.

+Dropped Platforms
+Support for Power7 based systems was removed in `v6.3-191-g16b7ae641037`.
+Power7 hardware was supported largely because it was the initial bringup
+platform for Skiboot. Once P8 hardware became available almost all
+development (and testing) on P7 ceased. Anyone interested in using OPAL on
+a P7 should look at one of the early `v5.x` releases.
