Fix documentation for gnt-node evacuate -p option

Update the documentation to remove the claim that the --primary-only

Note that this command is equivalent to using per-instance commands for
each affected instance individually:
- ``--primary-only`` is equivalent to ``gnt-instance
failover/migration`` for non-DRBD instances, but for DRBD instances
it's different, and usually is a slow process (it will change the
primary to another node while keeping the secondary, this requiring
data copies, whereas failover/migrate will only toggle the
primary/secondary roles, a fast process)
- ``--primary-only`` is equivalent to performing ``gnt-instance
migrate`` for every primary instance running on the node that can be
migrated and ``gnt-instance failover`` for every primary instance that
cannot be migrated.
- ``--secondary-only`` is equivalent to ``gnt-instance replace-disks``
in the secondary node change mode (only valid for DRBD instances)
in secondary node change mode (``--new-secondary``) for every DRBD
instance that the node is a secondary for.
- when neither of the above is done a combination of the two cases is run
