So I've spent a while working through the patches. I think it's a
well-done RST conversion carried out with a light hand; I do not believe
there are any readability issues with the resulting text files.

I will note that the series adds some new build warnings:

> Documentation/trace/events.rst:45: WARNING: Inline emphasis start-string without end-string.
> Documentation/trace/events.rst:49: WARNING: Inline emphasis start-string without end-string.
> Documentation/trace/events.rst:193: WARNING: Inline emphasis start-string without end-string.
> Documentation/trace/events.rst:114: WARNING: Unknown target name: "common".
> Documentation/trace/ftrace.rst:2620: WARNING: Inline emphasis start-string without end-string.

These point to places where the resulting formatted docs are, in fact,
incorrect. I had to append the attached patch to the series to make those
problems go away. The warnings are there for a purpose!

Anyway, with that, the patch series is applied. Thanks for helping to
improve the docs, and my apologies for taking so long to get to this.

Subject: [PATCH] docs: ftrace: fix a few formatting issues

Make sure that literal * characters are not interpreted as emphasis
markers.
