I think a common sense should apply here -- i.e., make less
work for manpage writers?  What most of our section four
manpages document?  Drivers or subsystems?  I think drivers.
This is an example manpage, it's not a full skeleton manpage.
To be a full skeleton manpage, some other words can be put
into comments, like is already done for the .Dd argument.
