Are these tex files shipped because people might want to rebuild the PDF
? I am ok if we don't ship them.

But we still have to fix the HTML and manpage long filenames. We could:
* use shorter type names in the device attributes, but it'll be hard
anyway since we it's waaaaaay too long. doxygen didn't actually go the
lastest level of nested struct/unions: we have union hwloc_obj_attr_u ->
struct hwloc_bridge_attr_u -> union hwloc_bridge_downstream_attr_u ->
struct hwloc_bridge_downstream_pci_attr_u
* stop doing nested declarations of all these attribute union/structs so
that doxygen generates foo and bar instead of foo and foo_bar. but we'll
end up having many struct/union declarations and I think it would be
hard for people to read them while traversing the unique nested
declaration is easy.

I am looking for a way to tell doxygen to output foo and bar even when
bar is declared inside foo but I didn't find anything yet.
