docs: Create a user-space API guide
This is meant to be the place for documentation relevant to application developers. It's empty for the moment, but at least we have a place now! Signed-off-by: Jonathan Corbet <corbet@lwn.net>

+The Linux kernel user-space API guide
+=====================================
+
+.. _man-pages: https://www.kernel.org/doc/man-pages/
+
+While much of the kernel's user-space API is documented elsewhere
+(particularly in the man-pages_ project), some user-space information can
+also be found in the kernel tree itself. This manual is intended to be the
+place where this information is gathered.
