kernel-doc: detect/prevent duplicate doc section names
I saw this problem recently. With this kernel-doc: * Note: some important info * * Note: other important info kernel-doc uses the "section name" (preceding the ':', like "Note") as a hash key for storing the descriptive text ("blah important info"). It is (was) possible to have duplicate (colliding) section names, without any kind of warning or error. kernel-doc happily used the latter descriptive text for all instances of printing the <section-name> descriptive text and the former important info was lost. One way to "fix" this is to modify the kernel-doc comments, e.g.: * Note1: foo bar * * Note.2: blah zay For now, kernel-doc will signal an error when it sees colliding section names like this.
