There is a comment in make-docfile.c that says that docstrings in .el
files must start with a backslash and newline immediately after the
opening double quote.  The files listed above (should) have docstrings
that comply with that requirement.

I tried running make-docfile on just simple.el, and only one docstring
was produced (for previous-complete-history-element), which is
consistent with that comment.
