      docsrc: build Documentation/ sources · 3794f3e8
      Randy Dunlap authored
      Currently source files in the Documentation/ sub-dir can easily bit-rot
      since they are not generally buildable, either because they are hidden in
      text files or because there are no Makefile rules for them.  This needs to
      be fixed so that the source files remain usable and good examples of code
      instead of bad examples.
      
      Add the ability to build source files that are in the Documentation/ dir.
      Add to Kconfig as "BUILD_DOCSRC" config symbol.
      
      Use "CONFIG_BUILD_DOCSRC=1 make ..." to build objects from the
      Documentation/ sources.  Or enable BUILD_DOCSRC in the *config system.
      However, this symbol depends on HEADERS_CHECK since the header files need
      to be installed (for userspace builds).
      
      Built (using cross-tools) for x86-64, i386, alpha, ia64, sparc32,
      sparc64, powerpc, sh, m68k, & mips.
