RFR: 197: git-fork should use --dissociate with --reference-if-able

Hi all,

please review this patch that ensures we use the `--dissociate` option to `git
clone` when someone is using `git fork --reference`. We need to use this flag
to ensure that the objects are only borrowed from the referenced repository to
reduce network transfer, we don't the borrow to continue after the clone.

- [x] Manual testing of `git-pr fork --reference`
