	There is no sl(4) manual page describing the SLIP pseudo-device 'sl'.

	Take a look through a number of kernel config files.  note the
	lines like 'pseudo-device sl'.  Try to figure out what the is
	and how to manipulate it by saying 'man 4 sl'.

	'man slip' yields the slattach manual page.  this is arguably
	bogus, as well, and should point to sl(4), which should reference
	the slattach page.

	Somebody should write a sl(4) manual page, etc.
