There is now single MI MAKEDEV(8) manpage, which lists all
devices for all architectures. For each device, it Xrefs
all individual MD manpages, for example:

     Keyboard devices:
         wskbd#      wscons keyboard events, see wskbd(4)
         kbd         Raw keyboard (provides events, for X11), see
                     acorn32/kbd(4), sparc/kbd(4), sun2/kbd(4), sun3/kbd(4)
         kbdctl      Keyboard control
