* addressed Fabian's feedback (where appropriate more details are added to the
individual patches)

original cover-letter:

With the recent announcement by KAM about the availability of a signed
update channel for the KAM.cf (and other) ruleset [0], I thought that this
might be a better suited way to provide regular updates to KAM.cf compared
to the initial patch I sent some time ago [1].

The upside of using sa-update is that it does lint the ruleset before trying
to pull the updates, and afterwards as well. GPG signed updates by KAM can
also be considered production worthy.

I tried to align the implementation to the channel.d mechanism mentioned in
[0] since it seems:
* somewhat sensible (these days my first choice would not be shell-code
* one mechanism of potentially having a distributable way of providing
  the necessary configuration for an external SA ruleset - and the only one
  I'm aware of, which is not a self-tailored script

The patchset was tested with the file provided at [0] on my test

Should this be accepted we could ship
/etc/mail/spamassassin/channel.d/KAM_channel.conf in proxmox-spamassassin
