Replace duplicated README content with a link.

As per the conversation with @justinko and @dchelimsky:
#146 (comment)

Note that this link is broken for now because this hasn't
yet been merged into master. But I figured it was better
not to use a working link just to the branch since that
branch will likely be deleted in the near future.

## Stubbing Constants
-Support is provided for stubbing constants. Like with method stubs, the
-stubbed constants will be restored to their original state when an
-example completes.
-
-``` ruby
-stub_const("Foo", fake_foo)
-Foo # => fake_foo
-```
-
-Stubbed constant names must be fully qualified; the current module
-nesting is not considered.
-
-``` ruby
-module MyGem
- class SomeClass; end
-end
-
-module MyGem
- describe "Something" do
- let(:fake_class) { Class.new }
-
- it "accidentally stubs the wrong constant" do
- # this stubs ::SomeClass (in the top-level namespace),
- # not MyGem::SomeClass like you probably mean.
- stub_const("SomeClass", fake_class)
- end
-
- it "stubs the right constant" do
- stub_const("MyGem::SomeClass", fake_class)
- end
- end
-end
-```
-
-When you stub a constant that is a module or a class, nested
-constants on the original module or class are not transferred
-by default, but you can use the `:transfer_nested_constants`
-option to tell rspec-mocks to transfer them:
-
-``` ruby
-class CardDeck
- SUITS = [:Spades, :Diamonds, :Clubs, :Hearts]
- NUM_CARDS = 52
-end
-
-fake_class = Class.new
-stub_const("CardDeck", fake_class)
-CardDeck # => fake_class
-CardDeck::SUITS # => raises uninitialized constant error
-CardDeck::NUM_CARDS # => raises uninitialized constant error
-
-stub_const("CardDeck", fake_class, :transfer_nested_constants => true)
-CardDeck::SUITS # => [:Spades, :Diamonds, :Clubs, :Hearts]
-CardDeck::NUM_CARDS # => 52
-
-stub_const("CardDeck", fake_class, :transfer_nested_constants => [:SUITS])
-CardDeck::SUITS # => [:Spades, :Diamonds, :Clubs, :Hearts]
-CardDeck::NUM_CARDS # => raises uninitialized constant error
-```

+README](https://github.com/rspec/rspec-mocks/blob/master/features/stubbing_constants/README.md)

## Use `before(:each)`, not `before(:all)`
