Subject[PATCH 02/10] docs: cgroup-v1: replace custom note constructs with appropriate admonition blocks
Date
Admonition constructs on the documentation use definition lists, which
isn't fit for the purpose. Replace them with appropriate blocks:

* Use caution:: for outdated document notice
* hint:: for memo
* note:: for other constructs
* warning:: for memory reclaim
