    Drop all 00-INDEX files from Documentation/ · a7ddcea5

    This is a respin with a wider audience (all that get_maintainer returned)
    and I know this spams a *lot* of people. Not sure what would be the correct
    way, so my apologies for ruining your inbox.
    The 00-INDEX files are supposed to give a summary of all files present
    in a directory, but these files are horribly out of date and their
    usefulness is brought into question. Often a simple "ls" would reveal
    the same information as the filenames are generally quite descriptive as
    a short introduction to what the file covers (it should not surprise
    anyone what Documentation/sched/sched-design-CFS.txt covers)
    A few years back it was mentioned that these files were no longer really
    needed, and they have since then grown further out of date, so perhaps
    it is time to just throw them out.
    A short status yields the following _outdated_ 00-INDEX files, first
    counter is files listed in 00-INDEX but missing in the directory, last
    is files present but not listed in 00-INDEX.
