Summary

Add some of the missing sysctls to tcp.4, using references to other
man pages where they exist. Added sysctls include recvbuf and sendbuf
controls for automatic buffer sizing. Updated recvspace and sendspace.

Add sysctl.8 to "see also" and intro to variable section. Rename
"MIB Variables" section to "MIB (sysctl) Variables", as most people
will associate with sysctl.

Test Plan

tested with mandoc

Tangent question; what does "gently" mean here? Slightly, ie by a small amount overall? Slowly, ie at a low pace overall change regardless, or not abruptly? Or is it a typo for "greatly"?

I think it means gradually, and probably by a small amount, but I don't know this algorithm.

I think it means gradually, and probably by a small amount, but I don't know this algorithm.

Then I suggest changing it to "gradually" pending review by someone who does. Here or in another Phab review is up to you.
