Modified Files:
	basesrc/sbin/newfs: newfs.8 newfs.c

Log Message:
* add -F option: enable creation of file system in a regular file.  a "fake"
  disklabel is created as per mfs on "swap".
* add -Z option: pre-zero the -F image file before use. this is necessary if
  the image is to be used with vnd(4) because by default the files created
  with -F have "holes" and vnd doesn't cope with that.
* support 'k', 'm', 'g' suffixes for all options which take numeric arguments.
  provide strsuftoi() which performs the parsing mechanism.
* improve man page description of various options
* replace "filesystem" with "file system"
* when displaying usage for mfs, only list mfs options
* minor KNF and WARNS=2 cleanups
