Description of problem:
The command line options to mkinitrd are a mix of "value=<something>" and
"value <something>", the former with "=", the latter using space as
delimiter. The man page claims that "--preload=<module>", while mkinitrd
--help claims "--preload <module>". The latter is correct, and use of
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use mkinitrd, and specify a module with --preload=modulename
2. Try again, but use --preload modulename.
3. Only the latter will work.
4. View man page, and view mkinitrd --help...they differ.
Actual Results: --preload=modulename fails.
--preload modulename works.
Expected Results: The man page should not disagree with mkinitrd. Although
the format with space as token delimiter is correct for --preload, the
version with "=" is correct for --with. Both versions should have a
consistent syntax with either both using space as delimiter, or both using
"=" as delimiter, but not a mix.
