kernel-doc: handle arrays with arithmetic expressions as initializers
In a different approach here's a patch that handles the special case of composite arithmetic expressions in array size initializers. With it, prior to pushing the split strings on the @first_arg array, I split the keywords before the array name as before and then keep the array name along with the subscript expression as a single whole element which gets pushed last. In this manner, kernel-doc produces correct output without removing whitespaces which makes the array subscripts unreadable in the docs.
