Make media and static files serving more reliable when reverse proxy X_FORWARDED_* headers are incorrect.
It's one of the most common issue, cf https://governance.funkwhale.audio/d/jtavw8gh/set-up-on-headless-server-with-docker/3 for instance, and it occurs when
X-Forwarded-Host headers are set incorrectly, which is really easy to when you have multiple proxies nested together.
The root cause of the issue is that
MEDIA_URL is traditionally a relative path, and that Django concatenates this path to the host from the request headers. When those headers are not set correctly at the reverse-proxy level, you typically end up with urls such as
http://127.0.0.1/media/ instead of
This MR bypass this Django behaviour entirely, by setting by default an absolute URL for
