Trivial: docs: Remove six-space indentation in REPORTING-BUGS.
Other paragraph format docs in Documentation don't use paragraph indentations, so conform REPORTING-BUGS to that. Re-wrap the paragraphs, keeping the doc to a 74-character line length, since that's what the original seemed to use. Signed-off-by: Sarah Sharp <sarah.a.sharp@linux.intel.com>
