I don't see a reason that the documentation needs to come in it's own commit.
In v4, I would think this can collapse as part of:
"Add support for Dell hardware privacy"

I think this is 5.12 material now.
Need to update this to approximate 5.12 date.

I think Dell addresses publicly use a period rather than an underscore, no?
So shouldn't this be perry.yuan@...l.com? (Although I acknowledge it's an
alias, I don't trust that I/T wouldn't remove that some day).

You have a typo here.

So this is an bitmap encoded in the integer?  I think that needs to be mentioned
in the documentation.
