Bug Description

Sometimes we may want to freeze multiple filesystems.
This patch allows the user to specify multiple --freeze-filesystem arguments, or a comma seperated list of filesystems.

We also needed this fix and were about to push a patch for this functionality. As ours is effectively the same, we would gladly integrate this patch in lieu of our fix.

Only difference in our patch is that we added a synonymous command line parameter, --freeze-filesystems, in order to draw attention to the fact that multiple fs freezes are supported.

Please accept this patch.

I am updating the code to support multiple --freeze-filesystem options. This way your file system can even have commas in the name.

Many Thanks !

I would suggest also updating the documentation to indicate that multiple --freeze-filesystem options are supported.

Cheers,
