Include Upgrade Notice in post-auto-update emails

Description

When a plugin update is released, an optional Upgrade Notice is visible on the Updates page explaining anything important about a plugin release.
In the current age of automatic updates for plugins, those messages are not seen.

I'm proposing that the Upgrade Notice field should be included in the post-auto-update emails related to the plugin - if the author has set the field that is.

This would also be of benefit where a plugin receives a pushed force fix from WordPress.org for a security reason, a recent example was where someone who had not opt'd in to plugin auto updates received the update and was confused/concerned there was a bug.
In that case, had the upgrade notice been included the end-user would've seen a pretty generic, but helpful text of Version %s contains security fixes and is highly recommended for all users.

  • Keywords needs-patch added
  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to Future Release

We saw this during triage today, and leaving feedback from there:

Folks present thought it was a good idea to add this.
Tossing into Future, and marking that it needs a patch.
