[PATCH 1/2] Update doc on displayhint in command -var-list-children

When using command -var-list-children, "displayhint" is the result of
each child, instead of the attribute of the result, shown as the
following output.

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

Current doc on command -var-list-children doesn't reflect this.  This
patch is to fix it.

This patch also changes one line
from "This result may have its own attributes"
to   "This result has its own attribute".
