Man page (or other documentation) requirements for patch acceptance are a
regular kernel summit feature.  People seem to think it's a good idea, but
actual enforcement of such requirements always seems to be lacking.  Lots
of people have kind of given up trying.  I don't really see that adding
the man pages to the tree would help, but I could be wrong...
