drm/doc: Add RFC section
Motivated by the pre-review process for i915 gem/gt features, but probably useful in general for complex stuff. v2: Add reminder to not forget userspace projects in the discussion (Simon, Jason) v3: Actually put this into a folder, so we have it all (.rst files and headers for kerneldoc) contained somewhere separate (Jason) Cc: Simon Ser <contact@emersion.fr> Cc: Jani Nikula <jani.nikula@linux.intel.com> Cc: Joonas Lahtinen <joonas.lahtinen@linux.intel.com> Cc: Rodrigo Vivi <rodrigo.vivi@intel.com> Cc: Jason Ekstrand <jason@jlekstrand.net> Cc: Dave Airlie <airlied@redhat.com> Acked-by: Jason Ekstrand <jason@jlekstrand.net> Acked-by: Simon Ser <contact@emersion.fr> Acked-by: Rodrigo Vivi <rodrigo.vivi@intel.com> Acked-by: Dave Airlie <airlied@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Daniel Vetter <daniel.vetter@intel.com> Link: https://patchwork.freedesktop.org/patch/msgid/20210325225859.1684116-1-daniel.vetter@ffwll.ch

+===============
+GPU RFC Section
+===============
+
+For complex work, especially new uapi, it is often good to nail the high level
+design issues before getting lost in the code details. This section is meant to
+host such documentation:
+
+* Each RFC should be a section in this file, explaining the goal and main design
+ considerations. Especially for uapi make sure you Cc: all relevant project
+ mailing lists and involved people outside of dri-devel.
+
+* For uapi structures add a file to this directory with and then pull the
+ kerneldoc in like with real uapi headers.
+
+* Once the code has landed move all the documentation to the right places in
+ the main core, helper or driver sections.
