Man page suggests /dev/nb0 yet module produces /dev/nbd0

Bug Description

The examples in the man page for nbd-client include
         nbd-client 2000 /dev/nb0

Yet the nbd module produces /dev/nbd*

The client produces an error message that isn't clear when trying to use /dev/nb0:
  # nbd-client localhost 1024 /dev/nb0
  Error: Can not open NBD: No such file or directory

Still an issue with Ubuntu 10.04. The error message got even more confusing:

# nbd-client 2000 /dev/ndb0
Error: Cannot open NBD: No such file or directory
Please ensure the 'nbd' module is loaded.

Note that the error in this example is mis-spelling of nbd0 (ndb0 is wrong).

This seems to have been fixed; the man page refers to nbd0 and nbd1.
