The markup is bigger than the line. You should have seen a Sphinx

For the above, please indent, in order to properly change the
sysfs node font to bold. Also, mark paragraphs with a \n, e. g:

trace_method_name
The full path of the AML method that the user wants to trace.

Note that the full path shouldn't contain the trailing "_"s in its
name segments but may contain "\" to form an absolute path.

trace_debug_layer
The temporary debug_layer used when the tracing feature is enabled.

Using ACPI_EXECUTER (0x80) by default, which is the debug_layer
used to match all "AML tracer" logs.

trace_debug_level
The temporary debug_level used when the tracing feature is enabled.

Using ACPI_LV_TRACE_POINT (0x10) by default, which is the
debug_level used to match all "AML tracer" logs.

trace_state
The status of the tracing feature.

Users can enable/disable this debug tracing feature by executing
the following command::

After doing such changes:
