I added support differential backups. Differential backups in general are made by xdelta3.


1. pve-xdelta3 (to download from: http://local.ayufan.eu/pve-xdelta3.tgz): 
- repackaged from http://packages.debian.org/wheezy/xdelta3
- added support for lzop
- removed all python references

2. vzdump:
- there's new option called "fullbackup"
- when specified vzdump creates full backup if last is older than 'fullbackup' (days)
- if not specified create full backup every time (old behavior)

3. qmrestore and vzrestore:
- added support for differential backups

4. PVE.dc.BackupEdit:
- added controls for maxfiles and fullbackup

5. vzdump.conf
- added comment for "fullbackup"

My Perl is not that good, but I hope that you will like changes ;)
