Subject[PATCH 1/2] firmware/memmap: Cleanup
Date
Various cleanup the drivers/firmware/memmap (after review by AKPM):

- fix kdoc to conform to the standard
- move kdoc from header to implementation files
- remove superfluous WARN_ON() after kmalloc()
- WARN_ON(x); if (!x) -> if(!WARN_ON(x))
- improve some comments
