Yep. the better would be to keep documenting what will be used.

It is not a simple kernel-doc change.

The problem is that Kernel-doc expects:


/**
* foo - something
*/
void foo(...)

As it parses the file lines sequentially, using the parameters at
foo(...) to double-check if everything is ok.

In order for it to parse things like:

/**
* foo - something
*/

... (some other functions in the middle)

void foo(...)

Would require kernel-doc to first parse all the file, storing markups
on a separate struct, and then, on a second step, produce an output.

Even if modified to do that, there's a question if the result would
be what it is expected.

A separate thing would be to do things like:


/**
* foo - something
*/
void __foo(...)

The problem here is that usually the arguments for __foo() are
different than the ones for foo(). See for example the macros that
have a __foo() functions with an owner argument, that are solved
on a macro called foo().

Thanks,
Mauro
