  Add a new option to newfs(8), -r, to specify reserved space at the
  end of the device.  It can be useful, e.g., when the device is to
  become a member of a gmirror array later w/o losing the file system
  on it.
  Document the new option in the manpage.
  While I'm here, improve error handling for -s option, which is
  syntactically similar to -r; and document the fact that -s0 selects
  the default fs size explicitly, which can be useful, e.g., in a
  menu-based wrapper around newfs(8) requiring some value be entered
  for the fs size.
  Also fix a small typo in the help line for -s (missing space).
