virtio-9p: Create a syntactic shortcut for the file-system pass-thru

Currently the commandline to create a virtual-filesystem pass-through between
the guest and the host is as follows:
#qemu -fsdev fstype,id=ID,path=path/to/share \
-device virtio-9p-pci,fsdev=ID,mount_tag=tag \

This patch provides a syntactic short-cut to achieve the same as follows:
#qemu -virtfs fstype,path=path/to/share,mount_tag=tag

This will be internally expanded as:
#qemu -fsdev fstype,id=tag,path=path/to/share, \
-device virtio-9p-pci,fsdev=tag,mount_tag=tag \
