The information on the main page is obtained by searching for other
pages with certain names or categories.  So you just need to create your
module and/or vendor pages and they will show up in the lists.

This page has a bit more info

For the driver, create Matrix:Module-cs4270  (assuming snd-cs4270 is the
driver name)

Add the modinfo template as shown in the abovementioned wiki page.
This fills much of the boilerplat text in the module page.
My preference, if you have more interesting stuff to say about your
driver, is to  place it BEFORE the modinfo template.

Example in this style,

Probably easiest to copy an existing Vendor page.
Give the page a name "Matrix:Vendor-Something"
