Update Beaker Provided Tasks documentation
1. Update /distribution/command example rhts-reboot does not check $REBOOTCOUNT so the current example creates an infinite reboot loop. Update the example to something safer like logging the output of /proc/cpuinfo. 2. Replace "Other tasks" section with "Task source code" The "Other tasks" section refers to the Tasks/ subdirectory which was removed with commit 3b1960572abe in 2013. Change this section to instead link to the core-tasks and meta-tasks git repos. Bug: 1699255 Change-Id: I50090abb49e4611813c9cd66856b4e1993f6c928
