Hi,
Did you do "make htmldocs" or something similar on this?

Does this work without a function name?
Documentation/doc-guide/kernel-doc.rst says the general format is:

/**
* function_name() - Brief description of function.
* @arg1: Describe the first argument.
* @arg2: Describe the second argument.
* One can provide multiple line descriptions
* for arguments.
*

Also not in the general documented format.
