Add dd(1) manpage

Formatting is a bit weird, will need fixing.

By default input +data is read and written in 64kB blocks. When finished, \fBdd\fR displays the +number of records read and written as well as the total number of bytes copied. +\fBdd\fR syncs the filesystem once it is done copying. If you want +to disable that use the \fInosync\fR option. +.SH OPERANDS +.TP +if=\fIfile\fR +Read input from \fIfile\fR instead of the standard input. +.TP +of=\fIfile\fR +Write output to \fIfile\fR instead of the standard output. If an initial +portion of the output \fIfile\fR is skipped using the seek operand, the output +file is truncated at that point. +.TP +bs[=\fIN\fR] +If bs is not specified, the default blocksize is 64kB. If bs is specified +without setting it to a specific value then an optimal value between the source +and target filesystem will be selected. If this process fails it will fallback +to the system's pagesize. Adjust \fIN\fR to set the block size of the transfers +in bytes. +.TP +seek=\fIN\fR +Seek \fIN\fR blocks from the beginning of the output before copying. +.TP +skip=\fIN\fR +Skip \fIN\fR blocks from the beginning of the input before copying. +.TP +count=\fIN\fR +Copy only \fIN\fR input blocks. +.TP +direct +Use direct I/O for data. +.TP +quiet +Enable quiet output. +.TP +nosync +Do not sync the filesystem once we are done copying.
