Pulling all these comments into the generated kerneldoc would be
awesome, maybe as a new "GPU Scheduler" chapter at the end of
drm-mm.rst? Would mean a bit of busywork to convert the existing raw
comments into proper kerneldoc. Also has the benefit that 0day will
complain when you forget to update the comment when editing the
function prototype - kerneldoc which isn't included anywhere in .rst
won't be checked automatically.
