Could someone tell me at what stage is the documentation effort about the /proc interface ?

Ok, here is some very basic documentation. It is deliberately
incomplete. All I have done is to track down the code for all
the files in /proc/acpi but not its sub-directories.
I'm after feedback, constructive hopefully! It's very sparse
and basic for now, so here are my questions:
- is this basic format ok?
- how do we want to define the interfaces formally? I've tried
to show the supported userland calls, eg read(), write().
The goal of this documentation should be to make it possible
to understand /proc/acpi entirely without reading the kernel
- how should I define things like "device class" and "bus id"?
userland might want to make use of them, however obviously
maintaining two lists is pointless
Anyway, it's attached. I'll expand it to the whole of /proc/acpi
(as much as I can) once I get some feedback!
