[pve-devel] [PATCH qemu] PVE: add zero block handling to PBS dump callback

Both the PBS and VMA dump callbacks assume that a NULL pointer can be
passed as *pbuf, but that never happens, as backup-dump.c calls this
function with contents of an iovec.

So first, remove that assumption and add an 'assert' to verify.

Secondly, while the vma-writer already does the buffer_is_zero check
internally, for PBS we relied on that non-existant behaviour for zero
chunks, so do the buffer_is_zero check manually and pass NULL to the
rust lib in case it is true.

This increases backup speed to PBS for VMs with free space quite dramatically.
