Hotfix branch

CI follows git-flow, but does not use the hotfix branch for critical fixes.
For example this PR https://github.com/codeigniter4/CodeIgniter4/pull/5536 
It fixes a bug directly affecting the work. But the fix will be added only in the next release.
I believe that such PRs should get into the main branch as quickly as possible, ignoring the release cycle.

I don't know if CI should follow git-flow, but I am also in favor of more frequent bug-fix-only releases.
And to do so, it seems we need to change branching a bit.
