This is to make debugging easier. Having fresh new destID assigned to
a device after insertion helps to analyze switch routing table updates.
Yes, find-first is sufficient and better understandable (I had it in
early version).
I will switch to find-first scenario to make things clear.

Idea here was that keeping static functions out of kerneldoc may
have sense and result in cleaner doc output. This was my first attempt
to take that path. Probably, kerneldoc adjustment patch for entire
file (or even all RapidIO files) would be more appropriate instead of
changing style half-way.
As you noticed, these comments are similar to kerneldoc - easy to get back
to old style. I will restore kerneldoc style for affected functions.

Agree. Will change.
