    sysctl.9: put negative sense sysctl note in own paragraph
    The sysctl man page cautions against negative-sense boolean sysctls
    (foobar_disable), but it gets lost at the end of a large paragraph.
    Move it to a separate paragraph in an attempt to make it more clear.
    This man page could use a more holistic review and edit pass.  This
    change is simple and straightforward and I hope provides a small but
    immediate benefit.

 For boolean sysctls, negative logic should be totally avoided.
 That is, do not use names like
