The texi documentation of chcon does not mention the options
--dereference, --preserve-root and --no-preserve-root, while the
usage message just misses the latter two.  The third attached
patch fixes this, plus a missing word in the general description
of the --preserve options.

The second attached patch removes a stray parenthesis in the
documentation of cp.

In the description of --force for cp, saying that -f is redundant
when -n is specified makes it sound as if -n encompasses -f,
whereas in fact -n cancels, nullifies, overrides -f.  So the first
attached patch changes "redundant" to "ignored".

Please ping us if they're not applied soon after 8.20.

I've adjusted the 2 remaining patches a little.

First to use the doc: prefix on the summary to
indicate they're not logic changes.

I've adjusted the chcon.c change a little to
keep the alphabetical ordering for the options,
and to reuse text (translations) from existing
--help documentation in chgrp etc.

I'll push the attached in a while.

Thanks for following up!
