[pve-devel] [PATCH] (partially) implement bwlimits

This patch-series adds support for bandwidth limits to:
* qemu-server for:
  * online migration (including local volumes)
  * offline migration (consisting of only local volumes)
  * online clone_vm
  * online move_vm_disk

* pve-container for:
  * migration (only offline)
  * clone_vm
  * move_volume

AFAIS the following operations still ignore the bwlimits configured:
* Migration with replicated volumes
* replication (which has its 'rate' parameter per job, but probably should also
  honor the 'migrate' bwlimit)
* Qemu offline clone and move_vm_disk - this codepath currently uses
  `qemu-img convert` (which has no rate-limiting parameter (yet)) and swapping
  this for 'dd', 'pvesm export/import' would lose the ability of `qemu-img` to
  preserve sparse-files (I quickly tested it with a lvmthin volume where
  qemu-img kept it sparse) - I'd be grateful for a pointer if/how this could
  work, or if I missed something!

Additionally my (quick and limited) tests showed that qemu's drive-mirror seems
to have a discrepancy between the set 'speed' parameter and the actual speed
(IIRC setting the speed to 10MB/s, consistently moved the data with 8MB/s),
however I stuck to the documentation (speed parameter is in bytes/s).

The patch for pve-storage is a small fix for a conditional in
get_bandwidth_limits, enabling us to pass 'undef', additionally to '[]', if
we don't care about limits set on storages.
