    Yes, well aware of both of those, plus a few minor problems
    with scripts/kernel-doc itself.
    I just added a minor rules-checker to the script and have
    more plans for it.

    We try to have new exported interfaces documented (I don't try
    on static [private] interfaces).

    I have had email with a professor in China who was going to have
    some students do some work in this area, but I haven't heard back
    from him (over 1 month ago).
