If we set the value of the environment variable GIT_CHERRY_PICK_HELP
when using `git cherry-pick`, CHERRY_PICK_HEAD will be deleted, then
we will get an error when we try to use `git cherry-pick --continue`
or other cherr-pick command.

So add option action check in print_advice(), we will not remove
CHERRY_PICK_HEAD if we are indeed cherry-picking instead of rebasing.

    [GSOC] cherry-pick: fix bug when used with GIT_CHERRY_PICK_HELP
    
    E.g. We are now in the branch main, we want to cherry-pick commit
    ac346df, then we want to use GIT_CHERRY_PICK_HELP to use customized
    advice:
    
    GIT_CHERRY_PICK_HELP="you should use git cherry-pick --continue after
    resloving the conflict!" git cherry-pick ac346df
    
    then we can see the correct advice message, but after that, if we want
    to use "git cherry-pick --continue" or other cherry-pick commands, an
    error will appear.
    
    So this patch fixes this bug when git cherry-pick is used with
    environment variable GIT_CHERRY_PICK_HELP.
