With this patch, asset helpers especially image_tag can use data: scheme in its src.
Support data: url scheme in asset paths.
@sakuro Is this still an issue?

@sakuro we will need a CHANGELOG entry for this pull request. Please add it
This looks good. It needs to be ported to master and 3-2-stable as well.
It is a bug fix, I don't think there is a need to go to the CHANGELOG (but nothing wrong if it goes).
