kernel-doc parser mishandles declarations split into lines
Reported by Johannes Berg [1]. Problem here: function process_proto_type() concatenates the striped lines of declaration without any whitespace. A one-liner of:: struct something { struct foo bar; }; has to be:: struct something {struct foo bar;}; Without the patching process_proto_type(), the result missed the space between 'foo' and 'bar':: struct something {struct foobar;}; Bugfix of process_proto_type() brings next error when blank lines between enum declaration:: warning: Enum value ' ' not described in enum 'foo' Problem here: dump_enum() does not strip leading whitespaces from the concatenated string (with the new additional space from process_proto_type).
