profile-manual: Updates to the LTTng Documentation section.
The LTTng Documentation website has been updated to actually have extensive documentation now. Previously, in the profile-manual, we were stating that documentation did not exist, which was true at the time of writing. I updated the section to link to the main LTTng documentation website and altered some other text in the section appropriately. Additionally, I found and corrected a couple spelling errors in this chapter.
