Add a Usage: line for thread_apply_command, in particular to mention
the thread ID list.

In thread_apply_command and thread_apply_all_command help, use
uppercase for arg names, as this style seems to be more standard.

	* thread.c (_initialize_thread): improve on-line help for
	thread_apply_command and thread_apply_all_command.
