    ifconfig.8: Improve -f synopsis
    - There is no need to mention in the synopsis that -f can be a list of
      comma-separated type:format pairs. Let's keep it simple instead.
    - Mention that -f can be supplied multiple times.
    - Add -f to other entries in the synopsis where it can be used.
    MFC after:      2 weeks
    (cherry picked from commit 52ec8807d8b3a59b7497a3aa94952c7ad4b162bd)
