[PATCH 0/3] LSM Documentation - Render lsm_hooks.h for kernel_docs

This patch series updates the LSM hook text defined in the comments
section of inlcude/linux/lsm_hooks.h. This enables the hook functions to
be rendered in kernel_docs html or pdf format.

Note that no text has been changed in lsm_hooks.h, only formatting
to render the text.

For reference two hooks have been marked as deprecated: sb_copy_data() and

Tested using 'make pdfdocs' and 'make htmldocs'

Change from RFC patch: Rebased on 5.12-rc7
