Some of the wording in the doc (taken largely from the help text), was a little imprecise in some cases, so this patch makes it a little more precise.

I don't think we need to duplicate the references. The interaction is described in the --regex description below, which itself also only applies to --option name, so anything we say here is redundant.

I think the "only show children" bit is important, since the initial root doesn't count as 1 (i.e. -r 0 prints the root tag, and no children, -r 1 prints the first-level children etc).
The switch does apply to .debug_info/types dumping, not just when displaying specific entries.
