[pbs-devel] [PATCH proxmox-backup v2 00/13] add 'protected' setting for snapshots

add the means to 'protect' a snapshot against pruning and removal by
adding a file '.protected' in the snapshot folder

in the v2, i opted against syncing the protected flag for two reasons:
* it gives the admin the choice on each datastore if he wants to keep
  the snapshot or not(if we sync it, we would have to sync it everytime?)
* it is much simpler to implement

changes from v1:
* rebase on master
* return the PruneMark enum instead of two booleans in compute_prune_info
* lock the snapshot when setting/removig the flag
* don't bail if the file does not exist on removal
* add a 'protected show' command to the client
* add a docs section to explain the protected flag

changes from rfc:
* added gui parts
* added tests
* fixed a bug (that the test uncovered)
* add pbs client command
* prevent removal (also during sync)
