doc: convert [\--] to [--]
Commit 1c262bb7b (doc: convert \--option to --option, 2015-05-13) explains that we used to need to write \--option to play well with older versions of AsciiDoc, but that we do not support such versions anymore anyway, and that Asciidoctor literally renders \--. With [\--], which is used to denote the optional separator between revisions and paths, Asciidoctor renders the backslash literally. Change all [\--] to [--]. This changes nothing for AsciiDoc version 8.6.9, but is an improvement for Asciidoctor version 1.5.4. We use double-dashes in several list entries (\--::). In my testing, it appears that we do need to use the backslash there, so leave those. Signed-off-by: Martin Ågren <>
