I'm not suggesting you should document them all or write a comprehensive
howto on how to run Coverity - all I'm suggesting is starting a small
doc somewhere in Documentation/ which contains some info on what all
those tools tags we use, mean and how people can find the information
they contain. Basically what you said above (which I've snipped).

But it would be a lot more helpful if it is written down so that people
can look it up. Also, that doc will serve as a documentation of all
those tags we're using in the kernel and what their format, etc would

Otherwise we'll have the current head scratching when a tag like that is
