Add man pages for the two new commands: daxctl-online-memory, and
daxctl-offline-memory.

+daxctl-offline-memory(1)
+========================
+
+NAME
+----
+daxctl-offline-memory - Offline the memory for a device that is in system-ram mode
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+[verse]
+'daxctl offline-memory' <dax0.0> [<dax1.0>...<daxY.Z>] [<options>]
+
+EXAMPLES
+--------
+
+* Reconfigure dax0.0 to system-ram mode
+----
+# daxctl reconfigure-device --mode=system-ram --human dax0.0
+{
+  "chardev":"dax0.0",
+  "size":"7.87 GiB (8.45 GB)",
+  "target_node":2,
+  "mode":"system-ram"
+}
+----
+
+* Offline the memory
+----
+# daxctl offline-memory dax0.0
+dax0.0: 62 sections offlined
+offlined memory for 1 device
+----
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+
+Offline the memory sections associated with a device that has been converted
+to the system-ram mode. If one or more blocks are already offline, attempt to
+offline the remaining blocks. If all blocks were already offline, print a
+message and return success without actually doing anything.
+
+This is complementary to the 'daxctl-online-memory' command, and may be used
+when it is wished to offline the memory sections, but not convert the device
+back to 'devdax' mode.
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+-r::
+--region=::
+	Restrict the operation to devices belonging to the specified region(s).
+	A device-dax region is a contiguous range of memory that hosts one or
+	more /dev/daxX.Y devices, where X is the region id and Y is the device
+	instance id.
+
+-u::
+--human::
+	By default the command will output machine-friendly raw-integer
+	data. Instead, with this flag, numbers representing storage size
+	will be formatted as human readable strings with units, other
+	fields are converted to hexadecimal strings.
+
+-v::
+--verbose::
+	Emit more debug messages

+=======================
+
+NAME
+----
+daxctl-online-memory - Online the memory for a device that is in system-ram mode
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+[verse]
+'daxctl online-memory' <dax0.0> [<dax1.0>...<daxY.Z>] [<options>]
+
+EXAMPLES
+--------
+
+* Reconfigure dax0.0 to system-ram mode, don't online the memory
+----
+# daxctl reconfigure-device --mode=system-ram --no-online --human dax0.0
+{
+  "chardev":"dax0.0",
+  "size":"7.87 GiB (8.45 GB)",
+  "target_node":2,
+  "mode":"system-ram"
+}
+----
+
+* Online the memory separately
+----
+# daxctl online-memory dax0.0
+dax0.0: 62 new sections onlined
+onlined memory for 1 device
+----
+
+* Onlining memory when some sections were already online
+----
+# daxctl online-memory dax0.0
+dax0.0: 1 section already online
+dax0.0: 61 new sections onlined
+onlined memory for 1 device
+----
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+
+Online the memory sections associated with a device that has been converted
+to the system-ram mode. If one or more blocks are already online, print a
+message about them, and attempt to online the remaining blocks.
+
+This is complementary to the 'daxctl-reconfigure-device' command, when used with
+the '--no-online' option to skip onlining memory sections immediately after the
+reconfigure. In these scenarios, the memory can be onlined at a later time using
+'daxctl-online-memory'.
