The current format is this:

/*?
 * Tag: <component>.<hash>
 * Text: "<kmsg message text>"
 * Severity: <severity>
 * Parameter:
 *   @1: <description of the first message parameter>
 *   @2: <description of the second message parameter>
 *   ...
 * Description:
 * <What is the kmsg message all about>
 * User action:
 * <What can the user do to fix the problem>
 */

See the "/*?" vs "/**" ? The kmsg comments are kernel-doc style but not
the same as kernel-doc.
