Just add it to Zynq maintainer fragment as we are doing for non zynq/xilinx
drivers.

> Why do we need the kernel-doc annotation for all those static functions?

I don't want to fight on this but having documentation help with reading
the code. I also don't think that only non static functions are documented.
I can't see any problem to have kernel-doc for static functions.
At least the is the first time when someone saying that only some functions
should be documented.

I don't think this is good to do. When we remove this prefix entirely
it is bigger chance that the same function name will be used by another driver.
It is not a problem with linking but the same functions names will be listed
in System.map which will complicate debugging.
For ARM multiplatform kernel I think that it is almost must to use
vendor prefixes for all platform/driver code.
All drivers can use instead of name_probe just probe but I don't think
this is the right way to go.

The rest was commented by Punnaiah.

Thanks,
Michal
