On the whole, good.

However, there is one thing which problematic.  Right from patch 1, you
start breaking the content used to render

Either the patches need to incrementally feed the converted files into
Sphinx directly (possibly with some one-time plumbing ahead of time), or
patch 1 needs to be some script in docs/ capable of rendering kernel-doc
to HTML, so we at least keep the plain docs around until the Sphinx
integration is complete.

i.e. don't cause what we currently have to fall off
https://xenbits.xen.org/docs/ entirely as a consequence of this series.
