This change allows passing private key objects to crypto.createPublicKey(), resulting in a KeyObject that represents a valid public key for the given private key. The returned public KeyObject can be used and exported safely without revealing information about the private key.

cc @sam-github, we talked about this in person and via Hangouts.

Notable changes:

* crypto
  * Allow deriving public from private keys (Tobias Nießen)
    [#26278](#26278).
* events
  * Added a `once` function to use `EventEmitter` with promises
    (Matteo Collina) [#26078](#26078).
* tty
  * Added a `hasColors` method to `WriteStream` (Ruben Bridgewater)
    [#26247](#26247).
  * Added NO_COLOR and FORCE_COLOR support (Ruben Bridgewater)
    [#26485](#26485).
* v8
  * Added `v8.getHeapSnapshot` and `v8.writeHeapSnapshot` to generate snapshots
    in the format used by tools such as Chrome DevTools (James M Snell)
    [#26501](#26501).
* worker
  * Added `worker.moveMessagePortToContext`. This enables using MessagePorts in
    different vm.Contexts, aiding with the isolation that the vm module seeks to
    provide (Anna Henningsen)
    [#26497](#26497).
* C++ API
  * `AddPromiseHook` is now deprecated. This API was added to fill an use case
    that is served by `async_hooks`, since that has `Promise` support
    (Anna Henningsen) [#26529](#26529).
  * Added a `Stop` API to shut down Node.js while it is running
    (Gireesh Punathil) [#21283](#21283).
