    [PATCH] Numerous fixes to kernel-doc info in source files.
    
    A variety of (mostly) innocuous fixes to the embedded kernel-doc content in
    source files, including:
    
      * make multi-line initial descriptions single line
      * denote some function names, constants and structs as such
      * change erroneous opening '/*' to '/**' in a few places
      * reword some text for clarity
