In the 9 years that I have designed, implemented, supported and documented one particular kernel API not one of the thousands of emails that I have received concerning that API was an offer to write documentation.
I did notice that the glibc folks removed some documentation from the header file that defines the API. I'm not aware that they put that documentation anywhere else. And someone recently noted the discrepancy between the glibc distributed header and the kernel driver header. The solution proposed was to remove the documentation from the driver header as well.
Now I get to sit back and watch someone else go through a similar process with the bsg driver. And that driver is going to be released with an API that has pending changes (at least 6 months old) held up due to kernel bureaucracy.
