Bug Description

when trying to (re-)import taken snapshots through the REST API, this fails due to /var/lib/snapd/snapshots not existing

that directory gets created dynamically if you take a snapshot, but if you try to import on a virgin device through REST calls the dir is not created and an error about this fact is thrown up.

the directory should either be dynamically crated when importing or should simply be shipped via a dirs entry in the deb.

We always create this directory internally (in case it's not there) when creating a snapshot, we should do the same in backend.Import.
