[PATCH, DOC] Enhance documentation of -fipa-ra option.


I accidentally learned that -fipa-ra option is disabled if:

 /* Do not use IPA optimizations for register allocation if profiler is active
    or port does not emit prologue and epilogue as RTL.  */
  if (profile_flag || !targetm.have_prologue () || !targetm.have_epilogue ())
    flag_ipa_ra = 0;

So I basically copied the comment to invoke.texi.

Apart from that, I've noticed that '-fprofile' (which is alias of '-p') is not documented.
Shouldn't it be documented as an alias?
