Series [v2,1/4] drm/i915/uapi: fix kernel doc warnings | expand

Commit Message

Matthew Auld April 19, 2021, 10:57 a.m. UTC
Add some example usage for the extension chaining also, which is quite
nifty.

v2: (Daniel)
  - clarify that the name is just some integer, also document that the
    name space is not global
v3: prefer kernel-doc references for structs
