The kbuild bot recently added the W=1 option, which triggered
documentation cleanups to squelch hundreds of kernel-doc warnings.

To make sure new kernel contributions don't add regressions to
kernel-doc descriptors, this patch suggests an option to treat
warnings as errors in CI/automated tests. A command-line option is
provided to the kernel-doc script, as well as a check on environment
variables to turn this optional behavior on.

Examples for the two subsystems I contribute to:

KCFLAGS="-Wall -Werror" make W=1 sound/
KCFLAGS="-Wall -Werror" make W=1 drivers/soundwire/

Randy Dunlap also suggested adding a log for when generating
documentation. The documentation build is however not stopped for now.

KDOC_WERROR=1 make htmldocs

So I'm not opposed to this, but I'm missing a couple of things in the
changelog:

 - A statement that you are adding a -Werror option that invokes this
   behavior.

 - Mention of the fact that you also cause it to look at a couple of
   environment variables and change its behavior based on that.

Could I get a version with that clarified a bit?

Thanks,

jon

Both points were covered by the sentence "A command-line option is
provided to the kernel-doc script, as well as a check on environment
variables to turn this optional behavior on".

I can try and make this clearer, maybe by moving this sentence to the 
start of a new paragraph?

Making that more prominent would be good, but a changelog like this should
say *which* command-line option was provided, and *which* environment
variables are checked.  Don't make people go digging through the patch to
figure it out.  See what I'm getting at?

Thanks,

jon

ok. I tried to avoid duplicating what's in the code, since it's 
relatively minimal and self-explanatory but I see your point. Will send 
a v2.
