[docs] [issue21680] asyncio: document event loops

New submission from STINNER Victor:

Currently, the different implementations of asyncio event loop are not listed in the documentation. But they are mentionned in some places, like in the subprocess section to mention that Proactor doesn't support subprocess or that they are issues with Kqueue on old Mac OS X versions.

It would be useful to mention at least the name of each event loop.

Each event loop has specific features or different limitations. See for example the issue #21437 which asks to mention that the proactor event loop doesn't support SSL.
