Subject[PATCH] Docbook: Make mandocs output more terse

Hello.

This patch takes into account requests from various LKML members for the
mandocs output to be more terse. Information about the copyright, and
formatting of the man page is moved into a comment at the start of the
groff output.

Sample output can be found at:
http://www.stillhq.com/linux/mandocs/2.6.0-test3-bk1/

Here's the patch:
