Add library API documentation for libcxl(3) using the existing
asciidoc(tor) build system. Add a section 3 man page for 'libcxl' that
provides an overview of the library and its usage, and a man page for
the 'cxl_new()' API.

+cxl_new(3)
+==========
+
+NAME
+----
+cxl_new - Create a new library context object that acts as a handle for all
+library operations
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+[verse]
+----
+#include <cxl/libcxl.h>
+
+int cxl_new(struct cxl_ctx **ctx);
+----
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Instantiates a new library context, and stores an opaque pointer in ctx. The
+context is freed by linklibcxl:cxl_unref[3], i.e. cxl_new(3) implies an
+internal linklibcxl:cxl_ref[3].
+
+
+RETURN VALUE
+------------
+Returns 0 on success, and a negative errno on failure.
+Possible error codes are:
+
+ * -ENOMEM
+ * -ENXIO
+
+EXAMPLE
+-------
+See example usage in test/libcxl.c

+libcxl(3)
+=========
+
+NAME
+----
+libcxl - A library to interact with CXL devices through sysfs(5)
+and ioctl(2) interfaces
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+[verse]
+#include <cxl/libcxl.h>
+cc ... -lcxl
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+libcxl provides interfaces to interact with CXL devices in Linux, using sysfs
+interfaces for most kernel interactions, and the ioctl() interface for command
+submission.
+
+The starting point for all library interfaces is a 'cxl_ctx' object, returned
+by linklibcxl:cxl_new[3]. CXL 'Type 3' memory devices are children of the
+cxl_ctx object, and can be iterated through using an iterator API.
+
+Library level interfaces that are agnostic to any device, or a specific
+subclass of operations have the prefix 'cxl_'
+
+The object representing a CXL Type 3 device is 'cxl_memdev'. Library interfaces
+related to these devices have the prefix 'cxl_memdev_'. These interfaces are
+mostly associated with sysfs interactions (unless otherwise noted in their
+respective documentation pages). They are typically used to retrieve data
+published by the kernel, or to send data or trigger kernel operations for a
+given device.
+
+A 'cxl_cmd' is a reference counted object which is used to perform 'Mailbox'
+commands as described in the CXL Specification. A 'cxl_cmd' object is tied to a
+'cxl_memdev'. Associated library interfaces have the prefix 'cxl_cmd_'. Within
+this sub-class of interfaces, there are:
+
+ * 'cxl_cmd_new_*' interfaces that allocate a new cxl_cmd object for a given
+   command type.
+
+ * 'cxl_cmd_submit' which submits the command via ioctl()
+
+ * 'cxl_cmd_<name>_get_<field>' interfaces that get specific fields out of the
+   command response
+
+ * 'cxl_cmd_get_*' interfaces to get general command related information.
