--- Comment #1 from Jakub Jelen <jjelen at redhat.com> ---
The -m switch is also accepted for the passphrase change of ssh-keygen,
which is not documented either.

With the light of the new OpenSSH key format by default, the manual
page for the ssh-keygen should be updated with some simple hint how to
convert PEM to OpenSSH and back, since this is pretty common
requirement, but the manual page is not helpful in this way -- the -i
nor -e do not work and only way I found that worked for me was changing
passphrase to convert to new key format (or old one).
