 Looking at the man page for gpart(8) on a recent 10-stable system, I was 
trying to find out what the -a option to list does.  (shown in the output of 
gpart when run with no parameters).  Interestingly, despite ?list? being 
highlighted in paragraph text as an action for the command, it does not appear 
in the summary at the top of the page, nor in the detailed DESCRIPTION section 
that describes each of the actions.

 This appears to still be the case on HEAD, as well.  I assume this is worth 
fixing and MFC?ing?

A PR was just entered for that: https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=191534

"list" and "status" and a couple of others that only apply for some GEOM modules (load, unload) are part of the base GEOM command set. I was going to say we should just refer the reader to another page, maybe geom(8).

But gmirror(8) does include those commands in the synopsis. We should be consistent with this, and I'd lean toward doing it the way gmirror(8) does now.
