Correct docs for "kdb5_util load" switches
Remove obsolete parenthetical statement in the description of the "-update" switch to "kdb5_util load". Using the "-update" flag to load a second dump made using the "-ov" switch is no longer necessary now that the "-r13" format is the default. Add statement that the "-b7" dump format was the default for versions prior to 1.2.2 (to match the statement from "dump" section). [ commit message] ticket: 7865 tags: pullup target_version: 1.12.2
