Documentation: link to gitrevisions rather than git-rev-parse
Currently, whenever we need documentation for revisions and ranges, we link to the git-rev-parse man page, i.e. a plumbing man page, which has this along with the documentation of all rev-parse modes. Link to the new gitrevisions man page instead in all cases except - when the actual git-rev-parse command is referred to or - in very technical context (git-send-pack).
