[PATCH 2/2] Doc 'dynamic' for command -var-list-children

I find "dynamic=1" appear in the result of each child of the output of

  -var-list-children  ss1
  ^done,numchild="2",children=[child={name="ss1.a",exp="a",numchild="0",type="struct s",thread-id="1",dynamic="1"},child={name="ss1.b",exp="b",numchild="0",type="struct s",thread-id="1",dynamic="1"}],has_more="0"

but the doc doesn't mention this.  This patch is to copy the description
of "dynamic=1" here.
