[Xen-devel] [OSSTEST PATCH 3/4] README.dev: Miscellaneous minor improvements

Clarify documentation on mg-blockage, and also suggest using
allocation instead.

No longer advise removing crontab as a way to shut osstest down.  The
stop file approach works fine and is less disruptive.

Minor formatting changes.
