I think I found it.  In the very last page of the index:

#  /usr/include/{asm{,-generic},drm,linux,mtd, rdma,sound,video}/*.h: 
Linux- API Headers

The first column overflows by quite a bit.  It is specified in 
chapter06/linux-headers.xml, line 87.

I tried running make pdf on quantum, but got:

/bin/sh: fop: command not found
