It could be the additional blank line at the end of documentation file
i.e Documentation/trace/coresight/coresight-trbe.rst, will drop it.

Sure, will add the following new sysfs doc file in this regard.
Marked the KernelVersion as 5.12, will change if required.

Yes, will change.

Sure, will also add CORESIGHT_SOURCE_ETM4X as dependency.

Added.
