Disable asciidoc 8.4.1+ semantics for `{plus}` and friends

asciidoc 8.4.1 changed the semantics of inline backtick quoting so
that they disable parsing of inline constructs, i.e.,

Input: `{plus}`
Pre 8.4.1: +
Post 8.4.1: {plus}

Fix this by defining the asciidoc attribute 'no-inline-literal'
(which, per the 8.4.1 changelog, is the toggle to return to the old
behaviour) when under ASCIIDOC8.
