[pve-devel] [PATCH dab-pve-appliances 0/2] download clamav signatures for pmg templates

This patchset downloads the required signature files for a successful clamav
startup upon first booting a PMG container created from our template.

It resulted from the discussion around a different approach of downloading them
(by adding a service which runs upon first boot inside the template) - see [0],
both on and off-list (thanks to Dietmar and Thomas for the suggestion!).

Downloading the cvd files and shipping them in the template is closer to the
way we build the ISO image.

The second patch adds verification of the downloaded files using clamav's
`sigtool` utility. It is kept as optional step (only if the tool is installed)
in order not to force people building the template to install a
full-blown clamav installation in their build-environment.
Kept as a separate patch to facilitate discussion, but can be squashed into
the first patch.
