I'll gladly accept patches to fix up the in-kernel documentation for
the driver-model.  A number of things have changed in this area over the
past years, especially in the power managment area.

But really, almost no "normal" developer has to mess with the kernel at
this layer, it's rare that someone writes a new bus or subsystem.

Ok, well, we add about one new one every kernel release, so there would
be 6 new developers a year that could benifit from better documentation,
not a huge number :)
