flags can now be used without a parameter to query the current
setting. Several enhancements to the -I information were made. New
flags "--make-bad-sector", "--repair-sector", and "--read-sector"
were added. The "-N" flag was added to get/set max address/HPA. Many
other fixes and enhancements were made.
