package for kernel man pages (section 9)

ls -al /usr/share/man/man9/kmalloc_*
/usr/share/man/man9/kmalloc_array.9.gz  /usr/share/man/man9/kmalloc_node.9.gz

and man kmalloc_array
does show the man page of kmalloc_array

Strange , there is **no** kmalloc.9.gz. (In fedora there is of course
man kmalloc)

Any ideas ?
