Except for one exception (at patch 32/57), the ReST conversion on this
patch set was manually made. I basically renamed the files to
.rst, checked the errors and fixed, trying to preserve the original
document style as much as possible, while providing a good visual
for the html output.
I suspect that trying to write a script for such kind of conversion
is not an easy task, as some documents within the Kernel tree have
their own personal style, (there was even one written in LaTeX at
the CDROM docs), and I suspect that a script would end by adding
extra unwanted markups.

Yeah, those documents make sense to be at the driver-api set.
The rationale why I placed the patch with actually renames on a
separate patchset (already on my devel tree, but yet to be submitted)
is that, this way, it should be easy for maintainers to pick the
conversion patch, apply on their trees, and, if they're not ready
yet, postpone the actual rename/move thing.

OK. Feel free to use this patch as a starting point if you
