[pve-devel] [PATCH dab-pve-appliances 1/2] pmg: include clamav cvd files in template

pmg depends on clamav, which does not start upon first boot without the
presence of it's virus database files.

By downloading them on the host and shipping them with the template
clamav-daemon starts up successfully. Since clamav-freshclam will
start downloading any updated files upon booting and notify clamav-daemon
the timeframe where the appliance runs with older virus defifinions is rather

Additionally this follows the way we ship the cvd files in the ISO image.

Downloading happens outside of the container, since it does not have access to
the network.

Tested by creating an image, starting a container from that image and
verifying that clamav-daemon starts up upon first boot.
