Dear committers,

The aforementioned patches are both tested and ready to either
land or get their final review/suggestions. They are meant to
improve jail management quality by facilitating the retrieving
and upgrading of the userland version of jails. So a user could
simply call freebsd-version(1) or freebsd-update(8) from the
host, along with the -j flag, to specify which jail to retrieve
or upgrade its userland version. So no need to manually set
BASEDIR and UNAME_r anymore, just specify the jail name/id.

I sincerely request a review, please. These small patches are
open since July 2020.

I appreciate your time.
