To better organize the information, add a microcontrollers section and
move/link the GuC, HuC and DMC documentation under it. Also add a small
intro.

+Microcontrollers
+================
+
+Starting from gen9, three microcontrollers are available on the HW: the
+graphics microcontroller (GuC), the HEVC/H.265 microcontroller (HuC) and the
+display microcontroller (DMC). The driver is responsible for loading the
+firmwares on the microcontrollers; the GuC and HuC firmwares are transferred
+to WOPCM using the DMA engine, while the DMC firmware is written through MMIO.
