BWA parameters in gatk4-data-processing workflow

Dear GATK developers,

I'm using the provided WDL script for data preprocessing (https://github.com/gatk-workflows/gatk4-data-processing).
I noticed the BWA parameters are: bwa_commandline="bwa mem -K 100000000 -p -v 3 -t 16 $bash_ref_fasta"

What is the -K flag for? I could not find it in the BWA manual.
Further I'm wondering if the -M flag isn't required anymore?

Thanks
Tim
