I am not sure exactly what you mean here by "not by default".  You
don't usually include --append-to-version by default?  Or even if you
do use that option you still do not get a versioned man page by
default?  Or you usually build the kernel and modules differently such
that you don't get a versioned man page by default?  Sorry, but I am
just not clear here.

Looking at the man page more closely I personally would probably be
looking for that information in /usr/share/doc/ and not in a man page.
Let me place a preference vote that the information be moved there
instead.  That seems the cleaner solution.
