AFAICT, none of the warnings are hppa specific.
I expect patches to fix the warnings would be welcome about now
for 2.6.14-rc releases. kernel-janitors mailing list is probably
a good place to submit those patches:

I suspect this warning is occurring as a result of misformatted
docbook comments in the C code. "<IN> line xxx" is the input file.
I have no idea how to correlate them though.

This is a bug in kernel-doc script I think.
Here is the offending line from pcm.h:
/* int snd_pcm_format_cpu_endian(snd_pcm_format_t format); */

It's clearly a set of upstream problems.
I have no idea if it's "known".
My advice is to check on kernel-janitors mailing list.
