Add git helper scripts and update Doc/Contributing

This updates the Contributing guidelines, providing instructions and
examples for how to submit code to the mailing list, e.g. send-email and
request-pull.

Of the scripts/git files, contributors will be most interested in
git-checkpatch and git-akaros-request-pull.  All of the git scripts will
work as git subcommands if you put them in your PATH.  e.g.

$ git checkpatch master..my_branch

or

$ git akaros-request-pull master my_repo my_branch

akaros-request-pull is just like the request-pull, but with an added
github URL for those who want to look at the patches on the world wide
web.

The other scripts, such as track-review, are mostly useful for code
reviewers.
