The checking scripts have been in place for many years, but it looks
like doc checking became part of EXTRA_GCC_CHECKS builds in 2017:

> commit 3a025e1d1c2ea42fa497c9c6b21c284e0f69e28b
Author: Matthew Wilcox <willy@infradead.org>

Add optional check for bad kernel-doc comments

Implement a '-none' output mode for kernel-doc which will only output
warning messages, and suppresses the warning message about there being
no kernel-doc in the file.

If the build has requested additional warnings, automatically check all
.c files. This patch does not check .h files. Enabling the warning
by default would add about 1300 warnings, so it's default off for now.
People who care can use this to check they didn't break the docs and
maybe we'll get all the warnings fixed and be able to enable this check
by default in the future.
