[pve-devel] [RFC manager 3/3] vzdump: new: add reminder to get rid of duplicate activate_storage

While it's unlikely that something breaks in practice, because
pvestatd calls activate_storage() for enabled storages every few
seconds, there's no rush to remove the duplicate call.

What could require the storage to be active between the activation in
new() and the activation in exec_backup() is:
1. An external storage plugin that requires the storage to be active
   for its get_subdir() implementation (unlikely to exist).
2. A job-start hook-script that requires the storage to be active.
