SubjectRe: [PATCH 25/26] docs: i2c: old-module-parameters: use monospace for filenames

This description and the subject are confusing. The strings you are
formatting are not filenames. They may be visible as sysfs attributes
and thus correspond to a filename, but primarily they are module
parameters and I2C client names.
