It can't go in linux/virt or linux/virt/fsl instead?  why drivers/ ?

or maybe linux/virt should be drivers/virt ?

Why any later version?  I thought that <powers> decided that Linux

This syntax should be (for all structs here):

 * struct fsl_hv_ioctl_restart - restart a partition

but the struct fields/members do use ':' instead of '-'.

Darn, I checked Documentation/kernel-doc-nano-HOWTO.txt and it says
that ':' is optional but '-' is needed, so you could use

 * struct fsl_hv_ioctl_restart: - restart a partition

ditto.
And function arg descriptions are missing for both of these functions.
