FYI, I went ahead and pushed this change into the main seabios repo.
The markdown format is quite readable for those wishing to review the
documentation in the docs/ directory, and converting it to wiki format
via pandoc is also straight forward.  So, I don't see any downside to
having the documentation stored in git.
