Lets make a habit not to put editor-related magic into our base
files.  They are redundant and useless.

   31: .Dt DEVCLASS 9
   32: .Os
   33: .Sh NAME
   34: .Nm devclass
   35: .Nd object representing a class of devices
   36: .Sh SYNOPSIS
   37: .Vt typedef struct devclass *devclass_t ;
   38: .Sh DESCRIPTION
   39: The
   40: .Dv devclass
   41: object has two main functions in the system.  The first is to manage
   42: the allocation of unit numbers for device instances and the second is
   43: to hold the list of device drivers for a particular bus type.
   44: Each
   45: .Dv devclass
   46: has a name and there cannot be two devclasses with the same name.
   47: This ensures that unique unit numbers are allocated to device
   48: instances.
