scripts/kernel-doc: handle struct member __aligned without numbers
Commit ef5da59f1260 ("scripts/kernel-doc: handle struct member __aligned") permits "char something [123] __aligned(8);". However, by using \d we constraint ourselves with integers. This is not always the case. In fact, it might be better to do char something[123] __aligned(sizeof(u16)); For example, With wireless_dev defining: u8 address[ETH_ALEN] __aligned(sizeof(u16)); With \d, scripts/kernel-doc erroneously says: Warning(include/net/cfg80211.h:2618): Excess struct/union/enum/typedef member 'address' description in 'wireless_dev' This is because the regex __aligned\s*\(\d+\) fails match at \d as sizeof is used. So replace \d with . to indicate "something" in kernel-doc to ignore __aligned(SOMETHING) in structs. With this change, we can use integers OR sizeof() or macros as we please.
