[PATCH v7 1/7] docs/man: modify xl(1) in preparation for naming of assignable devices

From: Paul Durrant <pdurrant@xxxxxxxxxx>

A subsequent patch will introduce code to allow a name to be specified to
'xl pci-assignable-add' such that the assignable device may be referred to
by than name in subsequent operations.
