util: Add maintainer tools to create upstream patches

This changeset adds a maintainer script,, that can
be used to prepare for upstream from a git repository. The script can
be used to generate patches in Mercurial or git format. The commit
messages in the exported patches are all filtered, see
upstream_msg_filter.sed, to ensure that irrelevant meta data isn't
included in the upstream commit.

Kudos to Curtis Dunham and Nikos Nikoleris for reviews and usability
enhancements for earlier versions of this patch.
