doc: convert \--option to --option
Rather than using a backslash in \--foo, with or without ''-quoting, write `--foo` for better rendering. As explained in commit 1c262bb7b (doc: convert \--option to --option, 2015-05-13), the backslash is not needed for the versions of AsciiDoc that we support, but is rendered literally by Asciidoctor.
