[kteam-tools][PATCHv2 3/3] create-stable-tracker: --version 'patchset' option for arbitrary patch sets

For collections of patches which do not have an associated upstream stable
version number (i.e. where the upstream stable series has reached EOL)
this option creates an LP tracking bug with a date-stamped in the title
in place of the upstream stable version number, e.g.:

    "Bionic update: upstream stable patchset 2018-07-06"
