	fdc(4) manual page, NOTES and fdcontrol(8) manual page
	describe kernel option FDC_DEBUG that was removed by phk
	2 years ago with the exception of pc98 architecture.
	OTOH, the kernel tunnable debug.fdc.debugflags is not documented.
	By the way, I think it should be made loader tunnable also
	to deal with boot-time problems.


	Try to find FDC_DEBUG in modern FreeBSD/i386


	Just remove FDC_DEBUG from mentioned manuals and NOTES.
