NAME
     md -- memory disk driver

SYNOPSIS
     pseudo-device md [count]

DESCRIPTION
     The md driver enables use of system or user memory as a disk.  Memory for the disk must be
     allocated within the kernel or with mdconfig(8) before the md device may be used as a disk.
     Its behaviour is configured by the kernel options MEMORY_DISK_HOOKS, MEMORY_DISK_IS_ROOT,
     MEMORY_DISK_ROOT_SIZE, MEMORY_DISK_DYNAMIC, and MEMORY_DISK_SERVER.

FILES
     /dev/md??	 block mode memory disk devices.
     /dev/rmd??  raw mode memory disk devices.
