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

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

don't we need both?  one for the in-kernel APIs, and one for how to
the user<->kern API works?

Er, yes, we need both.

And we actually have both!

        module(9) describes the in-kernel stuff
        modctl(2) descibes the user-kern API

Other than the rather generic description that existed in the older lkm(4) man page, I'm not sure what we could add. I'm not even totally convinced that we need to add anything...
