Hmm... I'm pretty sure I emailed about patch 4. Luis actually came with
a better solution: he partially removed the note, as it is outdated.
Better to revert it as otherwise it will rise conflicts at -next once

Andrea commented about #8. You already applied an identical patch :-)

Yeah, this patch touches on a lot of stuff. Better to handle it by the
end of a merge window.

I suspect you'll need to re-generate it by running this command again:

./scripts/documentation-file-ref-check --fix

But you should check the results, as false positives may arise.

If you prefer, I rebased the tree with the pending patches, placing
patch 9 at the end. This way, you'll likely avoid conflicts with
patches 10 and 11.
