[pve-devel] [PATCH v3 container] fix #3313: recover unprivileged bit from old config during pct restore

since pct defaults to privileged containers, it restores the container
as privileged when `--unprivileged 1` is not passed.

instead we should check the old configuration and retrieve it
from there.

this way, when one creates an unprivileged container on GUI, it will be
still restored as unprivileged via pct (without having to pass
`--unprivileged 1` parameter)

note: $orig_mp_param assignment is not guarded by $is_root anymore, but
this should still be okay since we do a second recover_config() call on
the archive file if $orig_mp_param is used
