Unfortunately I don't know how to do that yet using the API. For now
you'll either need to use the web interface to close the opened PR as
explained here, https://help.github.com/articles/closing-a-pull-request,
or write the following in a commit message to automatically close it:

    fixes #xxx
    fixed #xxx
    close #xxx
    closes #xxx
    closed #xxx

This information gleamed from:


Be aware that using that language in the commit message does reference
the issue number, not the pull request number. I'm not sure if they are
linked directly (one-to-one), but as the "issues" tab is disabled on
ipxe/ipxe I don't think it should make any difference.

I guess the few times when you want to close a pull request without
actually committing it, you'll have to use the web interface.

In the meantime, I'll research some more and see if I can figure out how
to close a PR and adding a comment using the API.
