Add rake task to finalize batched background migration (PK conversion)

Merged Krasimir Angelov requested to merge 292874-finalize-pk-conversion-inline into master

What does this MR do?

This MR adds rake task that will finalize batched background migration (PK conversion to bigint). We try to find the related batched background migration and finalize it (if needed).

If the migration is already finished, do nothing. Otherwise change its status to finalizing in order to prevent it being picked up by the background worker. Perform all pending jobs, then keep running until migration is finished.

This MR also updates the ensure_batched_background_migration_is_finished migration helper to include information how to use this new rake task.
