kernel-doc: fix syscall wrapper processing
Fix kernel-doc processing of SYSCALL wrappers. The SYSCALL wrapper patches played havoc with kernel-doc for syscalls. Syscalls that were scanned for DocBook processing reported warnings like this one, for sys_tgkill: Warning(kernel/signal.c:2285): No description found for parameter 'tgkill' Warning(kernel/signal.c:2285): No description found for parameter 'pid_t' Warning(kernel/signal.c:2285): No description found for parameter 'int' because the macro parameters all "look like" function parameters, although they are not: /** * sys_tgkill - send signal to one specific thread * @tgid: the thread group ID of the thread * @pid: the PID of the thread * @sig: signal to be sent * * This syscall also checks the @tgid and returns -ESRCH even if the PID * exists but it's not belonging to the target process anymore. This * method solves the problem of threads exiting and PIDs getting reused. */ SYSCALL_DEFINE3(tgkill, pid_t, tgid, pid_t, pid, int, sig) { ... This patch special-cases the handling SYSCALL_DEFINE* function prototypes by expanding them to long sys_foobar(type1 arg1, type1 arg2, ...)
