    Add documentation for errhandler callback
    The MPI_Errhandler callback function is defined as the MPI Standard as having
    a valist which is implementation specific. This adds a specification for those
    parameters to the user doc and the man page for MPI_Comm_create_errhandler.

    Add note about MPI_Init accepting NULL.
    As of MPI-2, MPI_Init will accept NULL as input parameters. This wasn't
    mentioned in the man page though this is pertinent information.
