If it's in the source, then I can send it with git format-patch.  If
it's out of tree, I have to find the tree, clone the tree, figure out
how to submit, and send separate emails.  And then whoever checks that
I documented it has to figure out where I sent it and how to read it
and then try to decide which documentation submission matches which
patch submission.

(Also, if it's in-tree, then I can build the docs from a kernel tree
and have the latest ones.  That could be nice.)
