OK, I've done that, so this series will show up in docs-next; hopefully
the merge conflicts will be resolved in the process.

I had said that I really wanted to move it all under driver-api and put
it into that manual, but, looking at what's there, it's not that simple.
The driver API parts of that manual belong there, but some of the
information is user-oriented. A long-term goal is to separate out those
two types of information so that interested readers can more easily find
the information relevant to them. But that won't happen for 4.10..:) So
I'll leave things as they are for now.

(Note also that the driver API manual already has a section on sound

This came from the driver DocBook conversion a while back. At some point
we should really pull all that stuff together into a single document).

Thanks again for doing this conversion,
