[pbs-devel] [PATCH proxmox-backup] pxar: create: add entry: fix anchored path pattern matching

Similar to 874bd545 ("pxar: fix anchored exclusion at archive root"),
but this time for inclusion. Because of the inconsistency, it could
happen that a file included in generate_directory_file_list() got
excluded in add_entry(), e.g. with a .pxarexclude file like
> *
> !/supposed-to-be-included

An alternative would be to remove the path pattern matching from
add_entry() entirely. AFAICT, it's only called with the files generated
by generate_directory_file_list() anyways.
