[python] Documentation fixes for gdb.Frame.


Just committed this.

	* python/python-frame.c (gdbpy_initialize_frames): Mark comment as a
	note instead of a FIXME.

	* gdb.texinfo (Basic Python): Document `gdb.solib_address'.
	(Frames In Python): Document `Frame.unwind_stop_reason' and
	`Frame.block'.  Reword documentation for `Frame.read_var_value'.
