config CP
	bool "cp"
	default y
	  usage: cp -fiprdal SOURCE... DEST

	  Copy files from SOURCE to DEST.  If more than one SOURCE, DEST must
	  be a directory.

		-f	force copy by deleting destination file
		-i	interactive, prompt before overwriting existing DEST
		-p	preserve timestamps, ownership, and permissions
		-r	recurse into subdirectories (DEST must be a directory)
		-d	don't dereference symlinks
		-a	same as -dpr
		-l	hard link instead of copying
		-v	verbose
