Point to module(9) instead of modctl(8).

We really need module(4) (not 9) like lkm(4)...

Agreed. Another question is the ever so terrible sysctl(7). (I think it
should be split, but I don't have a clear plan on how to make it more
sensible / readable.)

A quick read of lkm.4 shows that much of its contents is sufficiently generic as to still be applicable to modules. And most of the rest should be fairly easy to update/modify. If I can find some spare time, I might give it a try, unless someone does it sooner.

As for sysctl(7), that one is just a monstrous nightmare.  :)
