Subject: [PATCH] Linux Kernel Markers - Architecture Independent Code - kerneldoc for implementation
Date: Sun, 15 Jul 2007 19:48:00 -0400	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20070715234800.GN22428@Krystal> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20070715234350.GK22428@Krystal>

Linux Kernel Markers - Architecture Independent Code - kerneldoc for implementation

Add kerneldoc to Linux Kernel Markers API.
It applies after
"linux-kernel-markers-architecture-independent-code-remove-ifdef-kernel.patch"
