New Revision: 215363
Use shorten model name instead of showing all controller model
numbers. bge(4) supports too many models such that it's
unreasonable to list all these controllers in one line description
of name. While I'm here mention that BCM590x/BCM5779x is Fast
bge(4) still lacks support for some controllers but supporting
these controllers should be easy now and adding new controllers
do not require touching .Nd any more.
