mysqlrpladmin prints an error message that incorrectly provides guidance to use the --discover-slaves-login option with failover

How to repeat:
# mysqlrpladmin failover
Usage: mysqlrpladmin --slaves=root@localhost:3306 <command>

mysqlrpladmin: error: Option --discover-slaves-login or --slaves is required.

Execute the mysqlrpladmin failover command with the --discover-slaves-login option and get an error message stating that the --discover-slaves-login option is invalid for use with failover.

# mysqlrpladmin failover --discover-slaves-login=.myrpladmin.cnf[white-fog]
Usage: mysqlrpladmin --slaves=root@localhost:3306 <command>

mysqlrpladmin: error: Invalid --discover-slaves-login option for 'failover'. Use --slaves instead.

Suggested fix:
Print the correct error messages for the mysqlrpladmin commands.
