Documentation/devices.txt missng information addition suggestion

I tried to determine which line of make menuconfig should be ticked up
to get /dev/parport0.

devices.txt say
99 char Raw parallel ports
0 = /dev/parport0 First parallel port
1 = /dev/parport1 Second parallel port

parport.txt doesn't contain the word "raw". I also didn't find
anything that would discuss the problematics of raw parallel ports
in parport.txt

Suggestion #1: add information about raw parport access into parport.txt
Suggestion #2: add information to which make menuconfig entry the
raw parallel ports correspond into devices.txt file.
