Oh, I am sorry. I supposed it is the credits list for the people who
contributed to the manpage.

man xorg.conf says only:
Other modules and interfaces: exa(4), fbdevhw(4), v4l(4).

If I did not search for "disabling UTS/DFS", I didn't know there is a
manpage for EXA.
IMHO, the right place would be there.
In EXA manpage already exists a reference to xorg.conf.
(It wouldn't be wrong to place informations about EXA options in
xorg.conf manpage, too.)
It's up to you.
