RFR: forge: improve GitLabRepository::commitWithComment

Hi all,

please review this patch that improves the method `GitLabRepository::commitWithComment`. The problem is that GitLab's search API isn't really up to par (cannot handle square brackets in search query) and the search API is also going in away from GitLab CE in 13.9. This patch implements a simple search, just iterating backwards over the most recent commits, searching for the given title. The results are cached in-memory to speed up future searches.

- [x] Manual testing on Linux x64 using `git-skara debug commit-comments`
