    find: fix error diagnostics of options with mandatory, numeric arguments
    The error diagnostic for wrong invocations with option that require
    numeric arguments (-inum, -links, -gid, -uid) was wrong and not helpful:
      $ find -gid
      find: invalid argument `-gid' to `-gid'
    * find/parser.c (parse_gid): Remove changing back of the ARG_PTR in
    the error case; thus simplify.
    (parse_inum,parse_links,parse_uid): Likewise.
    (get_num): While at it, mention -gid and -uid in the comment as well.
    (insert_num): Also improve the error diagnostic in the case the user
    has provided a non-numeric argument.  Previously, it was just "invalid
    * tests/find/opt-numeric-arg.sh: Add test.
    * tests/local.mk: Reference it.
    * NEWS (Bug Fixes): Mention the fix.
