        If it's the intention that the SYNOPSIS from the device driver
        manual page is supposed to be what you paste into the kernel
        config, the existing line in the vmt(4) man page will give a
        syntax error from config:

     vmt0 at cpufeaturebus*

        Instead, what the user must write in the config file is

     vmt0 at cpu0

        (I'm a little uncertain of whether it's supposed to be "cpu0"
        or "cpu*")

        Read vmt(4), create a kernel config which uses

        vmt0 at cpufeaturebus*

        Watch config complain about a syntax error.
