Forgotten by's are nothing new. No new drivers should be committed
without a man page documenting what it is. We often look down on Linux
because they don't have a complete set of man pages.
You had two people publicly ask you to write up a simple man page after
you committed the driver. I didn't pass it by you for review because why
would I think you were interested if you wouldn't spend the 5 minutes
writing even a basic simple man page??
