btrfs-progs: Introduce asciidoc based man page and btrfs man page.
The old man page of btrfs will grow larger with new functions adding to btrfs-progs and harder to maintain because the reader-unfriendly roff grammar and one LARGE This patch will introduce the simplified Documentation directory mainly 'stolen' from git and include the first man page for 'btrfs(8)'. This time, man page will be written in human-friendly asciidoc grammar and each commands of btrfs will have a separate man page, which I hope can reduce the effort to maintain the man page.
