[PATCH 0/5] Fortran manual updates

This series of patches addresses some areas of bit-rot in the GNU
Fortran manual, mainly relating to the state of standard compliance
and the recently-completed TS29113 work.  I also removed some material
that is primarily of historical interest; given that gfortran replaced
g77 almost 17 years ago now, relatively few users will be interested
in why or how they differ any more, for instance.  And I don't see the
point in the manual documenting extensions that aren't actually
implemented.  I also fixed some organization and copy-editing issues I
noticed while working on the relevant sections, although that wasn't
my primary purpose in this patch set.  The whole manual needs a lot
more of that, but with documentation it's fine to do incremental
improvements.

I'll wait a couple days before committing these patches, in case
anybody wants to give some feedback, especially on technical issues.
