[coreboot] proposal: coreboot docs in separate repo

Not everyone has access to decent reliable internet and git is pretty
much useless if it gets interrupted. I would prefer to be able to
clone the source code without the documentation without having to
resort to some weird git commands to get it done. Of course, having
git bundles available over resumable http(s) can help a lot with that,
but they are almost never provided.
Just about any use case is going to pull other repos for payloads,
etc. anyway, so I don't see why having the documentation seperate
would be a problem.
 I already have the coreboot and board status repos cloned, but
that doesn't change the fact that I had issues getting it done at
first. Board status was particularly bad, over 200 MB to clone, over a
gig as uncompressed text. all just for the script to upload a new
commit - it shouldn't need all that to do it's job.
