doc: fix broken references



There are numerous broken references to Documentation files (in other
Documentation files, in comments, etc.). These broken references are
caused by typo's in the references, and by renames or removals of the
Documentation files. Some broken references are simply odd.

Fix these broken references, sometimes by dropping the irrelevant text
they were part of.

1.3 Mandatory Locking As A Mount Option
---------------------------------------
Mandatory locking, as described in 'Documentation/filesystems/mandatory.txt'
was prior to this release a general configuration option that was valid for
all mounted filesystems. This had a number of inherent dangers, not the
least of which was the ability to freeze an NFS server by asking it to read
a file for which a mandatory lock existed.
