docbook: make kernel-locking table readable
Andi Kleen pointed out to me that the kernel locking cheat sheet table entries are unreadable. Make table entries smaller so that pdf and ps output is readable (columns were being overwritten and garbled) by using abbreviations. This allows the tables to fit on one page cleanly. Add a Legend for the abbreviations: SLIS: spin_lock_irqsave SLI: spin_lock_irq SL: spin_lock SLBH: spin_lock_bh DI: down_interruptible Signed-off-by: Randy Dunlap <randy.dunlap@oracle.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
