[docs] [issue20806] os.times document points to wrong section of non-Linux manual

New submission from Geoffrey Spear:

The documentation for os.times directs the reader: "See the Unix manual page times(2) or the corresponding Windows Platform API documentation."

However, the POSIX manual page in question is times(3P), and on OS X and BSD systems it's times(3). Falling back to "man times" without specifying a manual section also doesn't work, since this finds the bash builtin rather than the library function.
