[PATCH] kernel-doc: stricter function pointer recognition
Randy Dunlap [Thu, 7 Dec 2006 04:38:52 +0000 (20:38 -0800)]
Be more careful about function pointer args:
look for "(...*" instead of just "(".

This line in include/linux/input.h fools the current kernel-doc script
into deciding that this is a function pointer:

unsigned long ffbit[NBITS(FF_MAX)];
