[dm-devel] [PATCH] mpathpersist.8: fix examples in man page

--prout-type is ignored in the REGISTER service action. The RESERVE service
action takes a Reservation Key, not a Service action Reservation Key, as
argument. The text mentions "Service Action Reservation Key" in several places
where it means the Reservation Key. Add examples for unregistering the current
key, and the CLEAR service action. Fix formatting with longer text in the
description lines (the .TP formatting would produce bad results if the
first line needs to be broken).
