git-am: Clean up the asciidoc documentation
Add --keep to synopsis. The synopsys used a mix of tabs and spaces, unify to use only spaces. Shuffle options around in synopsys and description for grouping them logically. Add more gitlink references to other commands. Various grammatical fixes and improvements. Signed-off-by: Frank Lichtenheld <frank@lichtenheld.de> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net>
