this series enables lockdown and module signing in our kernel build.

since that effectively means every kernel build is an ABI bump, it also
uses this opportunity to fold in the kernel meta packages into the
pve-kernel git repo and source package, since those packages now always
need to be bumped together anyway, instead of only most of the time.

because the old kernel meta packages had a higher number (8.x) than the kernel
packages themselves (6.2.16-Y), and the kernel package versioning is now shared
by the integrated meta packages (which would require an epoch to work for
upgrading), it also does the long-planned rename from 'pve-' prefix to
'proxmox-' prefix.

the actual kernel config change was tested by both Wolfgang and me (docs
incoming ;)), the rename only by me, I hope I haven't missed anything.

order of bumps:

pve-manager, proxmox-backup, pmg-api, proxmox-kernel-helper
 => only support for new package names, no deps on anything
 => breaks/replaces old pve-kernel-meta packages since it takes them over
 => dependend on by product meta packages to ensure upgrade happens
 => depend on new kernel/headers meta packages (included)
 => possibly depend on bumped pve-manager/proxmox-backup-server/pmg-api (not)

only sent to pve-devel, obviously parts apply to PBS/PMG instead..
