Summary0003059: Implementation of a persistent per peer storage
DescriptionMultiple components need to store per-peer information and retrieve these information after gnunet restart.

To provide this functionality in a central manner, an idea is to modify the peerinfo service, storing only hello information, to a "peerstore" service to persistently store per-peer information in a key-value mapping.

Clients will to store a value under a key (e.g. the subsystem name) and pass a pointer to the data and size information and peerstore will store this data in a backend. Peerstore will be agnostic of the data.

Peerstore will provide functions to store and retrieve this data.

We suggest the usage of an api backend to provide the possibility to use a database engine in addition to file base storage.
Steps To ReproduceTo move from peerinfo to peerstore, we have to modify current functionality focused on storing HELLO messages and provide a way to retrieve the HELLO messages

Christian's comment:

Clients will store value under a PeerIdentity and a subsystem name,
so the key is both "char * + PublicKey", not just the subsystem name.

So the 'const char *subsystem/key' argument needs to be passed to the
'GNUNET_PEERSTORE_iterate' call as well.

Also, you never defined the GetContinuation/AddContinuation/Processor
