listkeypattern: add pattern parameter to listkeys

This patch adds an ability to list keys by pattern.  This will allow to list
only relevant remote keys.

We want to allow users to push their local bookmarks and commits to the server
so that it will be easy to share them.
This is a two-step project. First step is a selective pull which will be
(probably) mostly implemented in remotenames extension -
Second step is infinite push. It will be
used to save certain commits in some other store. If
this project will be implemented then it will be easy to share data + all the
local commits will be automatically backed up.

Of course filtering can be done client-side somewhere in remotenames extension
but sending too many bookmarks over the wire seems unnecessary.
