mm: fix various kernel-doc comments
Fix various kernel-doc notation in mm/: filemap.c: add function short description; convert 2 to kernel-doc fremap.c: change parameter 'prot' to @prot pagewalk.c: change "-" in function parameters to ":" slab.c: fix short description of kmem_ptr_validate() swap.c: fix description & parameters of put_pages_list() swap_state.c: fix function parameters vmalloc.c: change "@returns" to "Returns:" since that is not a parameter 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>
