[PATCH v2 01/26] pnp.txt: standardize document format




Each text file under Documentation follows a different
format. Some doesn't even have titles!

Change its representation to follow the adopted standard,
using ReST markups for it to be parseable by Sphinx:

- Use a markup for document title;
- use :Author: and :Last updated: for authorship;
- adjust whitespaces where needed;
- mark literal blocks;
- fix a few subtitle markups.

 The New Way
-...........
-1.) first make a list of supported EISA IDS
-ex:
-static const struct pnp_id pnp_dev_table[] = {
-	/* Standard LPT Printer Port */
-	{.id = "PNP0400", .driver_data = 0},
-	/* ECP Printer Port */
-	{.id = "PNP0401", .driver_data = 0},
-	{.id = ""}
-};

-Please note that the character 'X' can be used as a wild card in the function
-portion (last four characters).

-ex:
-static const struct pnp_id pnp_card_table[] = {
-	{	"ANYDEVS",		0	},
-	{	"",			0	}

-2.) Optionally define probe and remove functions.  It may make sense not to

-serial_pnp_probe(struct pnp_dev * dev, const struct pnp_id *card_id, const

-static void serial_pnp_remove(struct pnp_dev * dev)

-consult /drivers/serial/8250_pnp.c for more information.
