[pve-devel] [PATCH http-server v3 1/2] access control: correctly match v4-mapped-v6 addresses

With recent changes to the listening socket code in pve-manager
the proxy daemons now usually bind to '::' and ipv4 clients are
read as v4-mapped-v6 addresses [0] from ::ffff:0:0/96.

This caused the allow_from/deny_from matching to break.

This patch addresses the issue by normalizing addresses from
::ffff:0:0/96 using Net::IP::ip_get_embedded_ipv4
(which roughly splits on ':' and checks if the last part looks like an
ipv4 address).

Issue was originally reported in our community forum [1]
