Makes sense.

Well, right now, it is at the same level as core-api, just below it:

Kernel API documentation
------------------------

These books get into the details of how specific kernel subsystems work
from the point of view of a kernel developer. Much of the information here
is taken directly from the kernel source, with supplemental material added
as needed (or at least as we managed to add it — probably *not* all that is
needed).

.. toctree::
:maxdepth: 2

driver-api/index
core-api/index
locking/index

Not too bad.

Btw, there are other doc sets that could also fit into the core-api, like:

...
accounting/index
...
security/index
...
bpf/index
...
scheduler/index

while most of the rest should likely be inside driver-api.

Some care should be taken when moving stuff, though: there is a
reason why they weren't moved to driver-api in the first place:
they may contain stuff for the admin guide mixed there.

Thanks,
Mauro
