Description of problem:
Current man-pages RPM doesn't include the kernel man (9) pages.
Kernel kernel man pages can be built by:
1. cd /usr/src/linux-<ver> (or cd /usr/src/kernels/linux-<ver>
2. make mandocs
3. make installmandocs. (Will install the man pages under /usr/local/man/man9)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: N/A
Expected Results: N/A
Kernel man pages are quite specialized, the APIs they describe change all the
time so they change quite often and they are often outdated.
That's why these man pages should not be in man-pages package.
