    For the kernel stuff there is a project to put documentation about functions
    and what they do inline into the kernel. Its slow progress. Trying to do
    anything formal and structured isnt going to be productive until the
    documentation is much much more complete

    For syscalls Andries Brouwer maintains a man page collection (and writes many
    of them). He takes submissions.
