kernel-doc: allow multi-line declaration purpose descriptions
Allow the short description after symbol name and dash in a kernel-doc comment to span multiple lines, e.g. like this: /** * unmap_mapping_range - unmap the portion of all mmaps in the * specified address_space corresponding to the specified * page range in the underlying file. * @mapping: the address space containing mmaps to be unmapped. * ... */ The short description ends with a parameter description, an empty line or the end of the comment block.
