We've had this already for anything new. With my drm_prime.c cleanup I
also think documentations for everything already existing is complete,
and we can bake this in as a requirements subsystem wide.

+Documentation Requirements for kAPI
+-----------------------------------

+All kernel APIs exported to other modules must be documented, including their
+datastructures and at least a short introductory section explaining the overall

+as much as reasonable. Do not blindly document everything, but document only

-Add missing kerneldoc for exported functions
---------------------------------------------
-
-The DRM reference documentation is still lacking kerneldoc in a few areas. The
-task would be to clean up interfaces like moving functions around between
-files to better group them and improving the interfaces like dropping return
-values for functions that never fail. Then write kerneldoc for all exported
-functions and an overview section and integrate it all into the drm book.
