Subject: [PATCH v2 00/11] Documentation: Add ABI to the admin guide


That's the third attempt to add support for the Kernel ABI
at the Documentation's admin guide.

The first approach was based on a generic extension that
calls a random script. This one is based on a new Sphinx
extension with adds a symbol specific for parsing ABI
symbols.

It adds a new script (scripts/get_abi.pl) with can either
search for ABI symbols that match a regular expression or
outputs the entire documentation found inside a directory
as a ReST book.

Adding the ABI description to the Linux documentation is
as easy as adding a tab like:

	.. kernel-abi:: $srctree/Documentation/ABI/obsolete

On version 3, I improved the script to better parse the
ABI descriptions. On this version, it will identify if the
description can be handled as a normal text. If so, it will
escape characters that has special meaning on Sphinx.
If it detects that the description syntax is too complex,
it outputs inside a literal block.

Also on version 3, I opted to use 4 separate sections, one
for each type of symbol. It also add an entry with the name
of each ABI file, with has cross-references to the symbols
defined on each file.

The parser was also improved to handle any content at the
files that are before the ABI tags.

The first 3 patches on this series fix some syntax errors
on some ABI description.

The next one makes sure that, when a table is present on
the description, the preceding line will end with a colon
(with is one of the ways the script uses to identify
complex layouts).

-

IMHO, we should add another ABI tag to allow using an
enriched text description, e. g. instead of:

Description:  foo

One could use, instead, something like:

ReST-description: foo

On such case, the script wouldn't need to escape the
description contents, as they can be just sent directly to
the ABI ReST output.
