Subject[PATCH 8/8] docs: kernel-doc: Don't mangle literal code blocks in comments
Date
It can be useful to put code snippets into kerneldoc comments; that can be
done with the "::" operator at the end of a line like this::

if (desperate)
run_in_circles();

kernel-doc currently fails to understand these literal blocks and applies
its normal markup to them, which is then treated as literal by sphinx. The
result is unsightly markup instead of a useful code snippet.

Apply a hack to the output code to recognize literal blocks and avoid
performing any special markup on them. It's ugly, but that means it fits
in well with the rest of the script.
