I mean.. so is msg_zerocopy just above ;-)  I spotted slight
alphabetical ordering there, which may have not been intentional,
that's why I put it here. Marking with # things out of order, but 
based on just the first letter:

#  netdev-FAQ
   af_xdp
   bareudp
   batman-adv
   can
   can_ucan_protocol
   device_drivers/index
   dsa/index
   devlink/index
   ethtool-netlink
   ieee802154
   j1939
   kapi
#  z8530book
   msg_zerocopy
#  failover
   net_dim
   net_failover
   phy
   sfp-phylink
#  alias
#  bridge
   snmp_counter
#  checksum-offloads
   segmentation-offloads
   scaling
   tls
   tls-offload
#  nfc
   6lowpan

My feeling is that we should start considering splitting kernel-only
docs and admin-only docs for networking, which I believe is the
direction Jon and folks want Documentation/ to go. But I wasn't brave
enough to be the first one. Then we can impose some more structure,
like putting all "performance" docs in one subdir..?

WDYT?
