Allow ignoring GitHub rate limits

      github-branch-source-2.9.0

      Description

      We are using a private instance of GitHub Enterprise, for which the rate limit is disabled.

      Our operations team was complaining that we were flooding their monitoring of the enterprise server with rate_limit requests, which is completely unnecessary, since we have rate_limit disabled, so nothing will ever be throttled. 

      The idea would be to add an extra ApiRateLimitChecker type, called NoThrottle, that simply doesn't check for rate limits, avoiding thus the unnecessary calls.
