Description of problem: The man-page for mkraid(1) documents -o as an
alias for --upgrade but it doesn't work; it results in a usage
message.  However, if you use the --upgrade option, mkraid tries to
honor it.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
# rpm -qf $(which mkraid)

How reproducible: 100% 

Steps to Reproduce:
1. read the mkraid man-page
2. try to use the -o option to mkraid
3. see the usage message appear.

raidtools is deprecated.  Closing as wontfix.  Please start using
mdadm instead.
