      Description

      Mariabackup's --use-memory option is only relevant when performing a --prepare. However, the usage message does not mention this:

      $ mariabackup --help | grep use-memory
        --use-memory=#      The value is used instead of buffer_pool_size
      

      It should probably be clarified, so it says something like this instead:

      The value is used in place of innodb_buffer_pool_size. This option is only relevant when the --prepare option is specified.
