docs: default to more modern toolset
When the ASCIIDOC8 and ASCIIDOC_NO_ROFF knobs were built, many people were still on asciidoc 7 and using older versions of docbook-xsl. These days, even the almost 2-year-old Debian stable needs these knobs turned. So let's turn them by default. The new knobs ASCIIDOC7 and ASCIIDOC_ROFF can be used to get the old behavior if people are on older systems. Signed-off-by: Jeff King <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
