doc: variables: nv vars are saved automatically.
In recent barebox versions, nv variables are saved automatically upon reset or kernel start (console message "nv variable modified, will save nv variables on shutdown" warns about that). There is no need to explicitly call saveenv. This change was introduced in 3fadbdae. Signed-off-by: Sascha Hauer <>
