docs String, hyperlink to Data.List

Add a reference to the documentation for Data.List in the description
for String.

On the generated Haddock for Data.String,

http://hackage.haskell.org/package/base-4.12.0.0/docs/Data-String.html

there is curently no hyperlink to Data.List, which is where a reader will find most of the useful functions which can operate on Strings. I imagine this has confused beginners who came to this page looking for String operations.
