My first goal was to make someone to first read the function comment without
going into the details of the code, and at the same time, by adding these
documentations, having these functions being listed at
https://www.kernel.org/doc/html/latest/.

So, in IMHO, they add a fast way, for someone who is trying to understand how
things work, to understand exactly what the function does in some seconds, than
reading the functions code.

In you're now happy with these comments, can you point how can I improve them?

Thanks in advance,
Marcos
