Subject: [PATCH 1/2] kstrto*: add documentation

As J. Bruce Fields <bfields@...ldses.org> pointed out, kstrto* is
currently lacking kerneldoc comments.
This patch adds kerneldoc comments to common variants of kstrto*:
kstrto(u)l, kstrto(u)ll and kstrto(u)int.

Cc: J. Bruce Fields <bfields@...ldses.org>
Signed-off-by: Eldad Zack <eldad@...refinery.com>
---
v2: includes typo fix from Joe Perches <joe@...ches.com>,
 added details as suggested by J. Bruce Fields <bfields@...ldses.org>,
 added the kstrto* functions to string conversions section in SGML.
