Summary: check_ifoperstatus.pl: fix for --authpass and --privpass

Initial Comment:
When calling check_ifoperstatus or check_ifstatus with the following arguments, I get errors:

    ./check_ifoperstatus -v3 -H hostname -U user -L authPriv -a MD5 --privpass YYYYYYYY --authpass XXXXXXXX -d eth0
    UNKNOWN: Invalid argument '-authpass => XXXXXXXX'

    ./check_ifstatus -v3 -H hostname -U user -L authPriv -a MD5 --privpass YYYYYYYY --authpass XXXXXXXX
    Missing arguments!

check_ifoperstatus and check_ifstatus generate the "-authpass => ..." parameter in a way, Net::SNMP->session doesn't understand.
check_ifstatus doesn't recognize "-L authPriv".

The attached patch fixes all problems for me.

Some details about my environment:
