Trivial: docs: Remove six-space indentation in REPORTING-BUGS.

Other paragraph format docs in Documentation don't use paragraph
indentations, so conform REPORTING-BUGS to that.

Re-wrap the paragraphs, keeping the doc to a 74-character line length,
since that's what the original seemed to use.

Send the output to the maintainer of the kernel area that seems to be
involved with the problem, and cc the relevant mailing list. Don't worry
too much about getting the wrong person. If you are unsure send it to the
person responsible for the code relevant to what you were doing. If it
occurs repeatably try and describe how to recreate it. That is worth even
more than the oops itself. The list of maintainers and mailing lists is
in the MAINTAINERS file in this directory. If you know the file name that
causes the problem you can use the following command in this directory to
find some of the maintainers of that file:
