SubjectRe: [PATCH 1/8] docs: kernel-doc: Get rid of xml_escape() and friends

I think this will break at least the -docbook output option, perhaps
also -html and -html5 options. If you think it's okay to break them,
would it not be better to just axe those off first?

I guess this boils down to, is kernel-doc the script a general purpose
tool, or just a very specific part of the kernel documentation build
process?

FWIW I think the latter, and why don't you throw docbook/html support
out already!


BR,
Jani.
