vgaarbiter: rst-ifiy and polish kerneldoc
Move the documentation into Documentation/gpu, link it up and pull in the kernel doc. No actual text changes except that I did polish the kerneldoc a bit, especially for vga_client_register(). v2: Remove some rst from vga-switcheroo.rst that I don't understand, but which seems to be the reason why the new vgaarbiter.rst sometimes drops out of the sidebar index. v3: Drop one level of headings and clarify the vgaarb one a bit. v4: Fix some typos (Sean).

+ *
+ * This function acquires VGA resources for the given card and mark those
+ * resources locked. If the resource requested are "normal" (and not legacy)
+ * resources, the arbiter will first check whether the card is doing legacy
+ * decoding for that type of resource. If yes, the lock is "converted" into a
+ * legacy resource lock.
+ *
+ * The arbiter will first look for all VGA cards that might conflict and disable
+ * their IOs and/or Memory access, including VGA forwarding on P2P bridges if
+ * necessary, so that the requested resources can be used. Then, the card is
+ * marked as locking these resources and the IO and/or Memory accesses are
+ * enabled on the card (including VGA forwarding on parent P2P bridges if any).
+ *
+ * This function will block if some conflicting card is already locking one of
+ * the required resources (or any resource on a different bus segment, since P2P
+ * bridges don't differentiate VGA memory and IO afaik). You can indicate
+ * whether this blocking should be interruptible by a signal (for userland
+ * interface) or not.
+ *
+ * Must not be called at interrupt time or in atomic context. If the card
+ * already owns the resources, the function succeeds. Nested calls are
+ * supported (a per-resource counter is maintained)
+ *
+ * On success, release the VGA resource again with vga_put().
