pybind/mgr/volumes: restore from snapshot
Manila's cephfs driver does not support recovering data from snapshots,The driver uses the ceph_volume_client library.
If implement cephfs_volume_client's `_cp_r` method1, it useful for data recovery of manila cephfs drivers.

I just checked who wrote that "TODO" comment, and it turns out it was me, even though I have no memory of it :-)
IIRC, the hope was that there would be a "read only clone" mechanism (i.e. a clone but the new share would have a readonly flag set), that would in reality just map the new volume to the proper .snap subdirectory, and we'd only do the full copy on a writable clone. I'm not sure whether the Manila clone API ended up in a form that provides that distinction, so that would be something to check.
