[pve-devel] [PATCH storage v2 1/2] fix #3972: Remove the .notes file when a backup is deleted

When a VM or Container backup was deleted, the .notes file was not
removed, therefore, over time the dump folder would get polluted with
notes for backups that no longer existed.
As backup names contain a timestamp and as the notes cannot be reused
because of this, I think it is safe to just delete them just like we
do with the .log file.

Furthermore, I sourced the deletion of the log and notes file into a
new function called "archive_auxiliaries_remove". This change makes it
easier to remove these files through archive_remove(), but also other
parts in the code while keeping it DRY.
I saw this change necessary because archive_remove() does not invoke
external plugins, and doing so might have unintended side effects.
