Subject: [PATCH] kernel.h: fix might_sleep kernel-doc
Date: Tue, 28 Oct 2008 12:40:31 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

From: Randy Dunlap <>

Put the kernel-doc for might_sleep() _immediately_ before the macro
(no intervening lines).  Otherwise kernel-doc complains like so:

Warning(linux-2.6.27-rc3-git2//include/linux/kernel.h:129): No description found for parameter 'file'
Warning(linux-2.6.27-rc3-git2//include/linux/kernel.h:129): No description found for parameter 'line'

because kernel-doc is looking at the wrong function prototype
(i.e., __might_sleep).  [Yes, I have a todo note to myself to
check/warn for that inconsistency in scripts/kernel-doc.]
