format-patch: add arbitrary email headers
format-patch supports the format.headers configuration for adding arbitrary email headers to the patches it outputs. This patch adds support for an --add-header argument which makes the same feature available from the command line. This is useful when the content of custom email headers must change from branch to branch. This patch has been sponsored by Grant Street Group Signed-off-by: Michael Hendricks <michael@ndrix.org> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>
