Subject: [RFC] docs: Define c_paren_attributes for attributes with arguments

While Sphinx's "c_id_attributes" is needed for basic attributes, any
attributes with arguments need to be defined in "c_paren_attributes"
to avoid errors like:

include/linux/fortify-string.h:116: warning: Function parameter or member '__builtin_strncpy' not described in '__diagnose_as'
include/linux/fortify-string.h:116: warning: Function parameter or member '1' not described in '__diagnose_as'
include/linux/fortify-string.h:116: warning: Function parameter or member '2' not described in '__diagnose_as'
include/linux/fortify-string.h:116: warning: Function parameter or member '3' not described in '__diagnose_as'

Move such attributes to "c_paren_attributes" and add __alloc_size
and __diagnose_as to the list.

This patch is a lie (the above warning is actually not fixed), but I
was hoping someone could help with this. The Sphinx documentation says:

c_paren_attributes
  A list of strings that the parser additionally should accept as
  attributes with one argument. That is, if my_align_as is in the list,
  then my_align_as(X) is parsed as an attribute for all strings X that
  have balanced braces ((), [], and {}). This can for example be used
  when attributes have been #define d for portability.

However, this appears to only work for attributes with literally a single
argument not "all strings X", so things like __printf and __diagnose_as
don't work.

Does this need fixing in Sphinx? Or am I missing something?
