Work around em-dash handling in newer AsciiDoc
Older versions of AsciiDoc used to literally pass double dashes when we used them in our linkgit macros and manpage titles, but newer ones (the issue was first reported with AsciiDoc 8.5.2) turn them into em dashes. Define litdd (literal double-dash) custom attribute in asciidoc.conf to work this around. While we are at it, fix a few double-dashes (e.g. the description of "project--devo--version" convention used by tla, among other things) that used to be incorrectly written as em dashes in the body text to also use this attribute.
