My main goal with this patchset is to get as close as possible to zero
warnings, as this helps me on rebasing a documentation patch series
I wrote with renames hundreds of file from .txt to .rst.

In the case of (3), the scripts/documentation-file-ref-check was unable to
find some files pointed by Italian and Chinese translations. So, after
this series, it will keep pointing for broken links there.

What I meant is that I can barely read Italian and have no glue on
Chinese. So, I can't really address those properly :-)
So, basically, it should be up to someone else fluent on such
languages to address those.

Btw, I understand why you pointed to some non-existing files:
translating the Kernel's documents takes a lot of time[1].

[1] If I was doing a translation, I would probably have opted to keep
pointing to the English doc and have a script to point me links to
non-translated docs, but your way also works. The only drawback is that
the script will keep pinpointing to translations with broken links,
while the translation is not complete.
