[PATCH 00/14] Move the ReST files from Documentation/*.txt

The main goal of this series is to cleanup the Documentation/
directory.

Most of the files under Documentation/*.txt are already in ReST format.
They just need to be moved to some place. So, most of the work here is
to just move files for them to generate an output using the docs building
system.

After this change, the  Documentation/ dir will contain:

- the main ReST file:
	- index.rst

- TUX and its copyright:
	- logo.gif and COPYING-logo

- Files required to do ReST builds:
	- .gitignore, Makefile,  conf.py,  docutils.conf,  Kconfig

- A pre-git file used to generate patches:
	- dontdiff
  (I guess we should get rid of it, as I doubt this is useful those days).

-

Besides the above rightful files, the Documentation/ dir will also
contain some left-overs:

- two somewhat new ReST files that should be moved to somewhere:
	- asm-annotations.rst and watch_queue.rst

- Two files that helps people looking for some well known documents
  that are referenced at the web, pointing to their new location inside
  the process/ dir:
	- SubmittingPatches and CodingStyle

- Three .txt files that weren't converted to ReST:
	- atomic_bitops.txt, memory-barriers.txt, atomic_t.txt

It should be noticed that I'm in doubt about the location of some files,
and some stuff may well belong to a trash can. So, this series create
a temporary place for orphaned documents in the form of a
Documentation/staging directory.

This series is also on my development git tree, at:

	https://git.linuxtv.org/mchehab/experimental.git/log/?h=rename-main-docs

The built output documentation on html format is at:

	https://www.infradead.org/~mchehab/kernel_docs/

(it contains also other documents I converted to ReST)
