I've had a few people asking me to submit it, but I'm not
convinced it would be worthwhile. Would people read it if
they had problems ?

make modules_install prints out a warning pointing them at it,
yet as this thread indicates, not everyone bothers to go there
and read it. Maybe if it was in-tree things would be different,
but I'm not convinced. People want things to 'just work'
rather than have to read about how to make them work.

That said, if it was in-tree it would be easier for people
other than myself to update it as things change.
The current doc is a little out of date (last changed
about 6 months ago), so probably needs a little work
before its ready for submission.

Is there enough interest in this from people to justify
me putting any effort into it ? If theres any value in
having this in tree, I'll submit the current version
to Andrew for -mm, and see if anyone dives in and starts
chopping/changing things.

If this does happen, it'd probably be worth eventually
replacing Documentation/Changes with it.
