* man2/syscalls.2 (.SH DESCRIPTION) <\fBgetdtablesize\fP(2)>: Remove "since
Linux 2.0" part for the osf_getdtablesize note, as syscall is generally
available since Linux 2.0; add line break after the word "as".
(.SH DESCRIPTION) <\fBpwrite\fP(2)>: Add line breaks.
(.SH DESCRIPTION) <\fBvm86old\fP(2)>: Add a line break after "in".

I'm a little lost here. As far as I can see, the page already renders
okay inside 80 columns, so I don't quite understand the point of this patch. 
Can you say some more please.

Thanks,

Michael
