This bug still applies to the current sysrq documentation. Please send
your improved documentation suggestions to the Kernel documentation
maintainers at linux-doc@vger.kernel.org.

They will surely want a patch, a git patch, and all that will take me
several years to learn, as I have just started...

For documentation I'm pretty sure that a regular text would suffice.

Looking at this (
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=330403 ) bug again,
it seems I'm in little position to make a patch, as I am pointing out
things I don't know, so CC'ing linux-doc.

Thanks for the message. and a git patch surely isn't necessary.
Just a patch would be fine.

I'll look into this.
