These asterisks were once references to a line that said:
  "* Other names and brands may be claimed as the property of others."
But now, they serve no purpose; they can only irritate the reader.

Hi Jon, I think Dave intended a few more patches to go via the doc
tree, in particular:

 docs: networking: devlink-trap: Fix reference to other document
 docs: networking: phy: Improve phrasing

Looks like those went missing. Would you mind taking those, or
would you prefer for them to land in the networking trees?

Not missing, just sitting in a folder waiting for me to get back to
dealing with the queue.  I'll get caught up soon.
