kernel-doc: handle varargs cleanly
The method for listing varargs in kernel-doc notation is: * @...: these arguments are printed by the @fmt argument but scripts/kernel-doc is confused: it always lists varargs as: ... variable arguments and ignores the @...: line's description, but then prints that line after the list of function parameters as though it's not part of the function parameters. This patch makes kernel-doc print the supplied @... description if it is present; otherwise a boilerplate "variable arguments" is printed.
