Hi all,

please review this patch that adds the `--backport=HASH` option to `git pr create` to make it a bit easier to create a
"backport style" pull request from the CLI. A backporter can now only has to run:

$ git checkout -b backport-8123456
$ git cherry-pick <HASH>
$ git pr create --backport=<HASH>
