"Major" is overestimated here -- just some small tweaks to the
current text to adopt to reality. The Handbook's sound chapter
has also been updated. For one, the SYNOPSIS of the sound(4)
manpage is lying about that you need only "device sound" to
get you sound -- you also need "device snd_<driver>".
Once the sound-related renaming is done (there are further plans
to do some more renames for better consistency in naming), the
sound(4) manpage will be replaced by the snd(4) manpage (yeah,
welcome back, old good "snd").
