In this case, it's a macro and yes, the kernel-doc could
easily be set around the macro in the .h, but my desire
is to keep all the string function kernel-doc output
together so it should be added to lib/string.c

Are you suggesting I move all the lib/string.c kernel-doc
to include/linux/string.h ?
