    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
