[PATCH bpf-next 0/4] Convert filter.txt to RST

From: Tobin C. Harding
Date: Thu Aug 09 2018 - 01:23:48 EST


This is my latest attempt at converting Documentation/filter.txt to RST
format. Added to the CC list because of additional changes to

For reference this set is a progression of the follow sets (in order of
post date to LKML)

1. [PATCH bpf-next 00/13] docs: Convert BPF filter.txt to RST
2. [RFC bpf-next 0/3] docs: Convert filter.txt to RST
3. [RFC bpf-next v2 0/3] docs: Convert filter.txt to RST

Sending this to BPF maintainers for hopeful inclusion in the bpf-next
tree. As discussed on LKML this set does all the conversion in a single
patch. This includes adding SPDX licence comments
(inc. seccomp_filter), adding RST labels, and updating references.

Please note this set adds three files to the MAINTAINERS file for the
BPF maintainers. Is this rude?

Also this set adds a SPDX licence to all new files and also to
seccomp_filter.rst I did this because checkpatch asked me to but I am
unsure on the protocol, is it acceptable to add a licence to
documentation that someone else wrote?

For the Record;

Daniel and Alexei, can I please have permission to add GPLv2+ to the BPF

Kees, Andy, and Drewry, can I please have permission to add GPLv2+ to

(added Cc: tag to patch 2 that adds the licence identifiers)
