Thank you very much for your reply, @Polytropon.I found some useful files in /usr/local/man and /usr/local/share/doc seems does not include the files which i want to get.It seems like that not all modules in /boot/kernel can correspond to a manual page. Could you please tell me how can i distinguish between OS-provided modules and non-OS-provided modules(modules like acpi* are OS-provided modules, of course) .

This probably is a 3rd party module, so the documentation
is located where the port maintainer decided to install it
to. In most cases, this will be /usr/local/share/doc/<name>,
but other locations are also possible. Some ported software
provides a manual page, "man <name>", but sadly it's not
always the case.
Sometimes you can derive from the name: "i915kms" is shorthand
for "Intel 915" (graphics chipset) kernel mode setting.

Usually "man <name>" will work for OS-provided modules.
