Subject[PATCH v4 0/3] docs/core-api: add memory allocation guide
Date
Hi,

As Vlastimil mentioned at [1], it would be nice to have some guide about
memory allocation. This set adds such guide that summarizes the "best
practices".

The changes from the RFC include additions and corrections from Michal and
Randy. I've also added markup to cross-reference the kernel-doc
documentation.

I've split the patch into three to separate labels addition to the exiting
files from the new contents.

v3 -> v4:
* make GFP_*USER* description less confusing

v2 -> v3:
* s/HW/hardware
