I (with the help of several other folks) have been trying to move
instances of specific devices out of the hardware list (where it
largely duplicates the content in manual pages) into the manual pages.

umass(4) has some of this content already, but before somebody brings
over the devices from the hardware list, there's a question of how
long we want that manual page to get.  There's a *lot* of umass(4)
devices in the world and it's not clear to what extent we want to even
*try* to exhaustively list everything there.

I see where trhodes@ has done some work on this manpage recently.
Tom, I haven't had a chance to ask you about this yet, but do you have
an opinion on how to handle this?
