In certain scenarios, see manager 2/2 and guest-common 3/4, replicated
volumes could end up orphaned. This series attempts to fix those, as
well as making removal of stale replication snaphsots a bit more
robust. Also includes some slight documentation improvements regarding

v1 can be found here (but there was no discussion):

Changes from v1:
    * Adapt to changed behavior of prepare(), so we still only catch
      volumes that had replication snapshots belonging to the job.
    * Drop simplification that would only rely on replication state
      to get storages for full removal.
    * Add safe-guard to only remove other replication snaphsots if the
      last_sync snapshot is present.

  pvesr: rename last_snapshots to local_snapshots
  pvesr: prepare local job: remove stale replicated volumes immediately
