Subject[PATCH] docs: riscv: convert boot-image-header.txt to ReST
Date
Convert this small file to ReST format by:
- Using a proper markup for the document title;
- marking a code block as such;
- use tags for Author and date;
- use tables for bit map fields.

While here, fix a broken reference for a document with is
planned but is not here yet.

- This header can also be reused to support EFI stub for RISC-V in future. EFI
specification needs PE/COFF image header in the beginning of the kernel image
in order to load it as an EFI application. In order to support EFI stub,
code0 should be replaced with "MZ" magic string and res5(at offset 0x3c) should
point to the rest of the PE/COFF header.
