xfsdocs: fix inode timestamps lower limit value

In kernel source tree 'fs/xfs/libxfs/xfs_format.h', there defined inode
timestamps as 'xfs_legacy_timestamp' if the 'bigtime' feature disabled,
and also defined the min and max time constants 'XFS_LEGACY_TIME_MIN'
and 'XFS_LEGACY_TIME_MAX' as below:

/* fs/xfs/libxfs/xfs_format.h begin */
struct xfs_legacy_timestamp {
        __be32          t_sec;          /* timestamp seconds */
        __be32          t_nsec;         /* timestamp nanoseconds */
 #define XFS_LEGACY_TIME_MIN     ((int64_t)S32_MIN)
 #define XFS_LEGACY_TIME_MAX     ((int64_t)S32_MAX)
/* fs/xfs/libxfs/xfs_format.h end */
/* include/linux/limits.h begin */
 #define U32_MAX         ((u32)~0U)
 #define S32_MAX         ((s32)(U32_MAX >> 1))
 #define S32_MIN         ((s32)(-S32_MAX - 1))
/* include/linux/limits.h end */

When the 't_sec' and 't_nsec' are 0, the time value it represents is
1970-01-01 00:00:00 UTC, the 'XFS_LEGACY_TIME_MIN', that is -(2^31),
represents the min second offset relative to the
1970-01-01 00:00:00 UTC, it can be converted to human-friendly time
value by 'date' command:

/* command begin */
[root@~]# date --utc -d '@0' +'%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S'
1970-01-01 00:00:00
[root@~]# date --utc -d "@`echo '-(2^31)'|bc`" +'%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S'
1901-12-13 20:45:52
/* command end */

That is, the min time value is 1901-12-13 20:45:52 UTC, but the
'design/XFS_Filesystem_Structure/timestamps.asciidoc' write the min
time value as 'The smalle st date this format can represent is
20:45:52 UTC on December 31st', there should be a typo, and this patch
correct 2 places of wrong min time value, from '31st' to '13st'.
