Well, the only part which comes from this patch is:

<para>
If you have comments on the formatting of this manpage, then please contact
Michael Still (mikal\@stillhq.com).
</para>

<para>
This documentation was generated with kernel version $ARGV[2].
</para>

I can shorten this if people would like.

The GPL bit people have commented on is actually extracted from the front
matter of the SGML file being converted inside
<legalnotice></legalnotice>. Therefore, if the SGML kerneldoc output we
already have includes the GPL, then so does the man page. I have not
imposed new license conditions on the documentation.

If people are comfortable with dropping the legal notice, or perhaps
inserting a line saying "refer to file X for the license on this
documentation", then I'll do that and send a new patch.

Cheers,
Mikal
