Subject[PATCH v2] Documentation: kernel-docs: Remove entry for vfs.txt
It's unnecessary to point to an external mirror of the Documentation

Jonathan Corbet writes in favor of removing this entry, instead of
moving it under "Docs at the Linux Kernel tree":

> We don't want to turn kernel-docs.rst into yet another out-of-date
> index for the rest of Documentation/, and the removal of the external
> URL takes away the only bit of additional information that this entry
> offers.

Signed-off-by: Jonathan Neuschäfer <>

- Follow Jonathan Corbet's suggestion of dropping this list entry
- I didn't include Martin Kepplinger's R-b, because v2 is significantly
different from v1
