Bug Description

Some show correct:

--rebuild_threads=#

Others have missing "=#":

--compress-threads

On this page:

http://www.percona.com/doc/percona-xtrabackup/2.1/xtrabackup_bin/xbk_option_reference.html#cmdoption-xtrabackup--rebuild_indexes

There are a few more options like this.

Also, proposed change:

s/
If a wrong LSN value is specified, it is impossible to diagnose this, causing the backup to be unusable. Be careful!
/
If a wrong LSN value is specified (a user error which XtraBackup is unable to detect), the backup will be unusable. Be careful!

Also applies elsewhere. Example:
 --parallel (there) vs --parallel=# (to be there)

--to-archived-lsn etc.

Another good idea for this page may be how to specificy options. For example,
--use-memory=#

If # bytes, then maybe we can mention this in the description. And/or if you can use K, M, G etc. then we could add this info also.

Examples from file above:
--incremental-basedir=name # would be great to add =name etc. to manual also
--compress-threads=#

etc.

May also be good to check if all xtrabackup options available from the binary match the manual (careful though; output file above is from 2.2, not 2.1 etc.)
