Hmmm... a file that isn't referenced anywhere else in the kernel
documentation so is unlikely to be found except by people who know it is

I can see that having lots of files for trivial devices is rather clumsy, but
there must be a better way.
I don't suppose we could just put the documentation in the device-driver file
in some format similar to kernel-doc and just extract it if it is wanted
separately? I think people read code a lot more than they read
documentation. I know I do.

But I can re-send with an update to trivial-devices.txt is that is what is
