    common/labs: workaround to avoid bashinput to break "8M"
    Currently our 'bashinput' environment breaks a line such as "dd ... bs=8M"
    between '8' and 'M', which is very bad. The correct solution appears to be
    switching from 'alsoletters' to 'breakatwhitespace=true' which breaks
    _only_ at whitespace. But that would create a problem with long strings
    without a space, and we have at least one currently, in the BBB yocto labs:

+% The digits in 'alsoletter' are a workaround to avoid breaking things like
+% "bs=8M". Replacing 'alsoletter={...}' with 'breakatwhitespace=true' would
+% be the correct solution, but we have a very long line in at least one lab
+% (yocto BBB) that would overflow the page if we did.
