I double-checked: after having both docs and media tree pulled upstream,
80% of the patches should apply cleanly.

So, I just merged the ones that apply cleanly at my -next tree: (master branch)

If everything goes well on tomorrow's next, I'll send you a pull request
with those.

The other ones depend on merges from DRM, hwmon and other
trees. So, I'll keep rebasing them and should be sending you a late
PR by the end of the merge window, fixing the remaining doc issues.

We're aiming to have zero documentation warnings by
the end of the merge window, when built with Sphinx 2.x,
and just a handful set of warnings with Sphinx 3.1+[1].

[1] One of the limitations of Sphinx C cross-reference code,
up to its latest version, is that it doesn't allow to have
both a function called "foo" and a struct or enum also called

With Sphinx < 3, this doesn't generate warnings, but it still
cause troubles with cross-references. Sphinx 3.x warns
about name clashes, but the bug was not solved yet upstream.
They're working on Sphinx to fix that in the future:
