[arch-general] [PATCH] core/linux: symlink current documentation on kernel upgrade

Hi all,

Currently, Linux documentation provided by the linux-docs package is
installed in /usr/lib/modules/$(uname -r)/build/Documentation. We like
documentation in /usr/share/doc 'round these parts, as per the Packaging
Guidelines. Additionally, symlinking in the package means that users
always have a path to the latest kernel documentation, without having to
fiddle around with uname.

Patch attached. Please let me know if I should be submitting this on a
different list, or if there are formatting problems.
