Subject[PATCH] docs: cputopology: move the sysfs ABI description to right place
Date
From: Tian Tao <tiantao6@hisilicon.com>

Documentation/admin-guide/cputopology.rst is the wrong place to describe
sysfs ABI. So move the cputopology ABI things to
Documentation/ABI/stable/sysfs-devices-system-cpu and add a reference to
ABI doc in Documentation/admin-guide/cputopology.rst.

*this patch is addressing the concern of Greg KH in the above link tag:

"Why are these sysfs files in this file, and not in a
Documentation/ABI/ file which can be correctly parsed
and shown to userspace?"

Architecture-neutral, drivers/base/topology.c, exports these attributes.
However, the book and drawer related sysfs files will only be created if
