Subject[PATCH 09/17] rcu: update.c: get rid of some doc warnings
Date
We need to escape *ret, as otherwise the documentation system
thinks that this is an incomplete emphasis block:

./kernel/rcu/update.c:65: WARNING: Inline emphasis start-string without end-string.
./kernel/rcu/update.c:65: WARNING: Inline emphasis start-string without end-string.
./kernel/rcu/update.c:70: WARNING: Inline emphasis start-string without end-string.
./kernel/rcu/update.c:82: WARNING: Inline emphasis start-string without end-string.
