    I've been wondering about that, too, a lot of functions are not added to
    man pages even by installing kernel-doc packages.

    Some "documentation" you can find in ./Documentation, e.g.

    fgrep -r printk /usr/src/linux-source-2.6.16/Documentation

    the API documentation seems toe be generally just one step away from
    useless, but at least they docs better than nothing at all (and a bit
    better than "just read the kernel source code") :-|
