A bunch of things have been removed meanwhile and docs not fully
brought up to speed. And a few gaps closed where I noticed missing
kerneldoc while reading through the overview sections.

           DRM identifies the GEM object to be mapped by a fake offset passed
           through the mmap offset argument. Prior to being mapped, a GEM object
           must thus be associated with a fake offset. To do so, drivers must call
-          <function>drm_gem_create_mmap_offset</function> on the object. The

-          offset divided by PAGE_SIZE in

-          has already been allocated for the object. This can be tested by
