There are a number of random documents that seem to be
describing some aspects of the core-api. Move them to such
directory, adding them at the core-api/index.rst file.

The nommu-mmap mostly provides description of user visible behaviuour. I
think it's bettter to have it in admin-guide/mm/.

This one doesn't apply for me.  Beyond that, I'm not entirely convinced
about a couple of the moves...

 - mailbox.txt seems like driver-api stuff to me?
 - nommu-mmap.txt is mostly (though not completely) about the semantic of
   mmap() options as seen by user space, so perhaps belongs in that
   manual...?

Thanks,

jon
