Only a few structs are documented on kernel-doc-nano format
(the ones added by the MC next gen patches).

Add a documentation for all structs, and ensure that they'll
be producing the documentation at the Kernel's device driver
DocBook.

Hi Mauro,

Thank you for the patch.

Very good idea ! Please see below for some spelling mistakes or other 
corrections in addition to the ones pointed out by Hans.

I'd say "List entry stored in one of the ..." (or "List head" if you prefer).

I think you can drop the "Define" and just say "A media link graph object". 
Or, rather, "A media graph link object" to mean "a link object part of a media 
graph".

Same comment for the other structures.

I'd mention there that it includes the backlinks too as it's always clearly 
apparent.

"Total number of links, forward and back, enabled and disabled"

"List of data links" or "Linked list of data links" if you want to make it 
explicit that struct list_head is a linked list, but I think that should be 
known to the reader (and have the word link twice in the description for two 
different purpose can be slightly confusing).

Maybe s/@major/@dev.major/ (and the same for minor) ?

As this is an internal structure I think we should clean code up sooner than 
later and remove the major and minor fields. It will be confusing for driver 
authors otherwise. Same for the revision and group_id fields.

Usual pet peeve of mine, this should be squashed with the patch that 
introduces struct media_interface. Same for the next chunk. I would actually 
move this patch before any patch that introduces a new structure, just to 
document the existing structures, and then add documentation for new 
structures in the patches that introduce them. That would be easier to review.

I don't think it works. The kernel-doc script is not smart enough to

Yes, but we could delay such change for Kernel 4.6. There are already
too much changes for 4.5.

Too late for doing that. It this patch were reviewed earlier...
