Pi-diet as a quorum device for Proxmox — /usr/lib/sftp-server: No such file or directory

There is a lot of good descriptions how to set it up, however – as Pi-diet does not use classic sshd but `dropbear` `pvecm qdevice setup` does not work:

# pvecm qdevice setup -f
/bin/ssh-copy-id: INFO: Source of key(s) to be installed: "/root/.ssh/id_rsa.pub"
/bin/ssh-copy-id: INFO: attempting to log in with the new key(s), to filter out any that are already installed

/bin/ssh-copy-id: WARNING: All keys were skipped because they already exist on the remote system.
		(if you think this is a mistake, you may want to use -f option)

INFO: initializing qnetd server
Certificate database (/etc/corosync/qnetd/nssdb) already exists. Delete it to initialize new db

INFO: copying CA cert and initializing on all nodes

Use a lightweight sftp server and fool pve that it is `/usr/lib/sftp-server`
