nbd: Introduce NBD named exports.

This patch allows to connect Qemu using NBD protocol to an nbd-server
using named exports.

For instance, if on the host "isoserver", in /etc/nbd-server/config, you have:

[generic]
[debian-500-ppc-netinst]
exportname = /ISO/debian-500-powerpc-netinst.iso
[Fedora-10-ppc-netinst]
exportname = /ISO/Fedora-10-ppc-netinst.iso

You can connect to it, using:

qemu -cdrom nbd:isoserver:exportname=debian-500-ppc-netinst
qemu -cdrom nbd:isoserver:exportname=Fedora-10-ppc-netinst

NOTE: you need at least nbd-server 2.9.18
