Diff to previous 1.23 (unified)

Add a new command to dd(1): msgfmt. The command modifies the
output of the information summary returned by dd(1). This can be used
to specify messages in a more usable (or parseable) format like
human-readable values.

My intent is to re-use this for building image files and quick I/O
benchmarking.
