[pve-devel] [PATCH docs v2] Reword krbd option description

Reword the description and add an extra note box for the KRBD option to
reflect its current use. As containers needs to use KRBD for a mapped
device anyway and they are not affected by this option.

V1 -> V2: puts clarification into a note box
