Documentation/git-show-branch: avoid literal {apostrophe}

The {apostrophe} was needed at the time of a521845800 ("Documentation:
remove stray backslash in show-branch discussion", 2010-08-20).  All
other uses of {apostrophe} were removed in 6cf378f0cb ("docs: stop using
asciidoc no-inline-literal", 2012-04-26).

Unfortunately, the {apostrophe} is rendered literally with Asciidoctor
(at least with 1.5.5-2.0.3).  Avoid this by using single-quotes.

Escaping the leading single-quote allows the content to render properly
in AsciiDoc and Asciidoctor.
