docs: put listed example commands in backticks
Many examples of git command invocation are given in asciidoc listing blocks, which makes them monospaced and avoids further interpretation of special characters. Some manpages make a list of examples, like: git foo:: Run git foo. git foo -q:: Use the "-q" option. to quickly show many variants. However, they can sometimes be hard to read, because they are shown in a proportional-width font (so, for example, seeing the difference between "-- foo" and "--foo" can be difficult). This patch puts all such examples into backticks, which gives the equivalent formatting to a listing block (i.e., monospaced and without character interpretation). As a bonus, this also fixes an example in the git-push manpage, in which "git push origin :::" was accidentally considered a newly-indented list, and not a list item with "git push origin :" in it.
