* docs: UML: Mention telnetd for port channelVincent Whitchurch2022-03-111-1/+5
| | | | | | | | | | | It is not obvious from the documentation that using the "port" channel for the console requires telnetd to be installed (see port_connection() in arch/um/drivers/port_user.c). Mention this, and the fact that UML will not boot until a client connects.

* docs: virt: convert UML documentation to ReSTMauro Carvalho Chehab2020-02-121-915/+786
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Despite being an old document, it contains lots of information that could still be useful. The document has a nice style with makes easy to convert to ReST. So, let's convert it to ReST. This patch does: - Use proper markups for titles; - Mark and proper indent literal blocks; - don't use an 'o' character for lists; - other minor changes required for the doc to be parsed.

* Documentation: move Documentation/virtual to Documentation/virtChristoph Hellwig2019-07-241-0/+4589
Renaming docs seems to be en vogue at the moment, so fix on of the grossly misnamed directories. We usually never use "virtual" as a shortcut for virtualization in the kernel, but always virt, as seen in the virt/ top-level directory. Fix up the documentation to match that.
