Dear Uladzislau,

in commit 538fc2ee870a3 ("rcu: Introduce kfree_rcu() single-argument
macro"), you have refactored the kfree_rcu macro.

Since then, make htmldocs warns:

./include/linux/rcupdate.h:882: warning: Excess function parameter
'ptr' description in 'kfree_rcu'
./include/linux/rcupdate.h:882: warning: Excess function parameter
'rhf' description in 'kfree_rcu'

As you deleted the two arguments in the macro definition, kerneldoc
cannot resolve the argument names in the macro's kerneldoc
documentation anymore and warns about that.

Probably, it is best to just turn the formal kerneldoc references to
the two arguments, which are not used in the macro definition anymore,
simply into two informal references in the documentation.

Best regards,

Lukas

Thanks for your suggestion. I am not sure if htmldocs supports something
like "__maybe_unused", but tend to say that it does not. See below the
patch:

<snip>

Subject: [PATCH] rcu: fix kerneldoc warnings

After refactoring of the kfree_rcu(), it becomes possible to use
the macro with one or two arguments. From the other hand, in the
description there are two arguments in the macro definition expected.
That is why the "htmldocs" emits a warning about it:

<snip>
./include/linux/rcupdate.h:882: warning: Excess function parameter
'ptr' description in 'kfree_rcu'
./include/linux/rcupdate.h:882: warning: Excess function parameter
'rhf' description in 'kfree_rcu'
<snip>

Fix it by converting two parameters into informal references in the
macro description.

I was thinking of a similar solution as you found here. That will probably do.

If it works for the documentation generation, then it works for me.  ;-)

OK. Then we need the patch to be reviewed by the documentation generation :)

Dear, linux-doc folk!

Could you please review the patch that is in question?

Thank you in advance.

I think you can shorten the feedback loop.
IMHO, the documentation is as comprehensible as before and it makes a
warning go away (getting us back to the zero-documentation-warnings
state).

Just send out your patch with linux-doc as CC and if there is no
complaint within a few days, Paul will pick it up and it is all good.
