As a workaround to make the documentation build again (but known that
parts of the documentation will be broken), we could drop the cdomain
extension.

Subject: [PATCH] Documentation: Drop use of 'cdomain' sphinx extension module

'c_funcptr_sig_re' was removed upstream in sphinx v3.0.0b1 and so the
kernel documentation build fails sphinx 3.x.

As a (temporary) workaround to make the documentation build, the
'cdomain' sphinx extension can be removed from the Documentation build
configuration file, although some parts using the feature will be
broken.

https://github.com/sphinx-doc/sphinx/issues/7421 describes the
workaround.
