s/cumulative/atomic replace/ almost everywhere?

'Documentation/livepatch/cumulative.txt' should be
'Documentation/livepatch/cumulative-patches.txt' and we may rename it
atomic-replace-patches.txt. I don't know. Cumulative patches forms a
subset of atomic replace patches in my understanding. The feature itself
is more general. Even if practically used for cumulative patches only. But
it is for you and Petr to decide.

Not needed.
