Merge tag 'docs-for-linus' of git://git.lwn.net/linux
Pull documentation updates from Jonathan Corbet: "Some big changes this month, headlined by the addition of a new formatted documentation mechanism based on the Sphinx system. The objectives here are to make it easier to create better-integrated (and more attractive) documents while (eventually) dumping our one-of-a-kind, cobbled-together system for something that is widely used and maintained by others. There's a fair amount of information what's being done, why, and how to use it in: https://lwn.net/Articles/692704/ https://lwn.net/Articles/692705/ Closer to home, Documentation/kernel-documentation.rst describes how it works. For now, the new system exists alongside the old one; you should soon see the GPU documentation converted over in the DRM pull and some significant media conversion work as well. Once all the docs have been moved over and we're convinced that the rough edges (of which are are a few) have been smoothed over, the DocBook-based stuff should go away. Primary credit is to Jani Nikula for doing the heavy lifting to make this stuff actually work; there has also been notable effort from Markus Heiser, Daniel Vetter, and Mauro Carvalho Chehab. Expect a couple of conflicts on the new index.rst file over the course of the merge window; they are trivially resolvable. That file may be a bit of a conflict magnet in the short term, but I don't expect that situation to last for any real length of time. Beyond that, of course, we have the usual collection of tweaks, updates, and typo fixes" * tag 'docs-for-linus' of git://git.lwn.net/linux: (77 commits) doc-rst: kernel-doc: fix handling of address_space tags Revert "doc/sphinx: Enable keep_warnings" doc-rst: kernel-doc directive, fix state machine reporter docs: deprecate kernel-doc-nano-HOWTO.txt doc/sphinx: Enable keep_warnings Documentation: add watermark_scale_factor to the list of vm systcl file kernel-doc: Fix up warning output docs: Get rid of some kernel-documentation warnings doc-rst: add an option to ignore DocBooks when generating docs workqueue: Fix a typo in workqueue.txt Doc: ocfs: Fix typo in filesystems/ocfs2-online-filecheck.txt Documentation/sphinx: skip build if user requested specific DOCBOOKS Documentation: add cleanmediadocs to the documentation targets Add .pyc files to .gitignore Doc: PM: Fix a typo in intel_powerclamp.txt doc-rst: flat-table directive - initial implementation Documentation: add meta-documentation for Sphinx and kernel-doc Documentation: tiny typo fix in usb/gadget_multi.txt Documentation: fix wrong value in md.txt bcache: documentation formatting, edited for clarity, stripe alignment notes ...
