Documentation: format-patch has no --mbox option
git-applymbox and git-mailinfo refer to a --mbox option of git-format-patch when talking about their -k options. But there is no such option. What -k does to the former two commands is to keep the Subject: lines unmunged, meant to be used on output generated with format-patch -k.
