man/*.adoc: convert to newer AsciiDoc syntax

Convert legacy emphasized text using single quotes to new syntax using underscores. This required using unconstrained quotes for some bold text. For the few placed that need literal single quote characters, use a passthrough macro.

Use one line titles (equals signs in front of the tile instead of underneath them) because my text editor (Kate) does not support syntax highlighting the old syntax.

Properly format labeled lists.

Use sentence case for all section titles. We are not some newspaper.

Wrap lines at 80 characters, because who doesn't love living the past...

The syntax still remains compatible with the asciidoc-py parser and man pages are still the same. The man pages can be generated with both a2x and asciidoctor.
