Subject: [PATCH bpf-next 2/3] bpf: fix formatting in documentation for BPF helpers

Fix a formatting error in the description of bpf_load_hdr_opt() (rst2man
complains about a wrong indentation, but what is missing is actually a
blank line before the bullet list).

Fix and harmonise the formatting for other helpers.
