restic option to configure S3 region

If you find yourself relying on restic using rclone to talk to non-default regions you may want to check out the just released restic version 0.9.6. To me it appears to be fixed when working with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) object storage. Below shows a test accessing Phoenix endpoint with the new -o option.

# restic -r s3:<tenancy_name>.compat.objectstorage.us-phoenix-1.oraclecloud.com/restic-backups snapshots -o s3.region=us-phoenix-1
