IIRC it's common for (clueful) vendors to provide docs under NDA with the actual release embargoed until the hardware is announced. Or there are weird tricks, like drivers landing in the mainline kernel under code names, and then when the press release goes out so does the rename-all-the-symbols-in-that-driver patch.
