    docbook: split kernel-api for device-drivers · f7f84f38
    Randy Dunlap authored
    The kernel-api docbook was much larger than any of the others,
    so processing it took longer and needed some docbook extras in
    some cases, so split it into kernel-api (infrastructure etc.)
    and device drivers/device subsystems.  This allows these docbooks
    to be generated in parallel.  (This reduced the docbook processing
    time on my 4-proc system with make -j4 from about 5min:16sec to
    about 2min:01sec.)
    The chapters that were moved from kernel-api to device-drivers are:
    Driver Basics
    Device drivers infrastructure
    Parallel Port Devices
    Message-based devices
    Sound Devices
    16x50 UART Driver
    Frame Buffer Library
    Input Subsystem
    Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI)
    I2C and SMBus Subsystem
