[Lapack] Incorrect R/C description in LAPACK 3.2.1 *gerfsx.f

Dear LAPACKers,

the R/C parameter description for the routines *gerfsx seems to be incorrect:

*     R       (input or output) REAL array, dimension (N)
*     The row scale factors for A.  If EQUED = 'R' or 'B', A is
*     multiplied on the left by diag(R); if EQUED = 'N' or 'C', R
*     is not accessed.  R is an input argument if FACT = 'F';
*     otherwise, R is an output argument.  If FACT = 'F' and
*     EQUED = 'R' or 'B', each element of R must be positive.
*     If R is output, each element of R is a power of the radix.
*     If R is input, each element of R should be a power of the radix
*     to ensure a reliable solution and error estimates. Scaling by
*     powers of the radix does not cause rounding errors unless the
*     result underflows or overflows. Rounding errors during scaling
*     lead to refining with a matrix that is not equivalent to the
*     input matrix, producing error estimates that may not be
*     reliable.

1) R/C are input only by their usage,
2) there's no FACT parameter in these routines
