[pve-devel] [PATCH 00/10] Single-file-restore GUI for PBS snapshots

Implements the necessary API for allowing single file restore via the PVE web

This requires some adaptations of the HTTP server, to allow data streaming
without buffering - otherwise bigger restores would a) use up too much memory b)
get slowed down by the pvedaemon->pveproxy->client return path. Instead, we
transfer the data via a temporary FIFO.

Known issues/further work:
* restore VMs are not shown or stopped, they always run until timeout. Ideas
  would be to stop them when a user closes the restore window (but what if
  another user/tab/... is using the VM too?), or start a worker task for them
  (how to detect new VMs? parse proxmox-file-restore status before and after
  command?). Thoughts appreciated :)
* restarting the daemon or proxy marks the worker as failed and correctly
  stops it, but the browser says the download is OK - just with not enough data.
  Not the best experience, but unsure on how to fix this. Chunked encoding
  maybe, and terminate with an invalid chunk in case of error/abort?
* downloading an entire container archive (clicking on the root) doesn't
  currently work. I'll fix that in proxmox-file-restore.

Not required, but looks better with:

common: Stefan Reiter (5):
  JSONSchema: don't cycle-check 'download' responses
  PBSClient: allow running other binaries
  PBSClient: add file_restore_list command
  PBSClient: allow different command execution callback
  PBSClient: add file_restore_extract function
