Yes. I have a patch with the rename step, but the problem is that doing
such renames on 57 different subdirs and then adding all of them to the
existing index.rst files (in order to add into a bookset) would cause
huge merge conflicts - and keeping them renamed without adding into
an index would cause a *lot* new warnings when building them.
So, IMO, the best would be to have the fixup stuff merged first, and
then do the renames/merges at once, after subsystem maintainers
pick the patches from this rst fixup series.
If you want to see the renaming patch, it is at:
(I'll probably split it later into per-subdir renames)
The results of this patch, plus the rename one, is at:
