Subject: [PATCH net] Documentation: bareudp: update iproute2 sample commands

bareudp.rst was written before iproute2 gained support for this new
type of tunnel. Therefore, the sample command lines didn't match the
final iproute2 implementation.

-There are two ways to create a bareudp device for MPLS & IP with multiproto mode
-enabled.
+The multiproto mode allows bareudp tunnels to handle several protocols of the
+same family. It is currently only available for IP and MPLS. This mode has to
+be enabled explicitly with the "multiproto" flag.
