qdev: Decouple qdev_prop_drive from DriveInfo

Make the property point to BlockDriverState, cutting out the DriveInfo
middleman. This prepares the ground for block devices that don't have
a DriveInfo.

Currently all user-defined ones have a DriveInfo, because the only way
to define one is -drive & friends (they go through drive_init()).
DriveInfo is closely tied to -drive, and like -drive, it mixes
information about host and guest part of the block device. I'm
working towards a new way to define block devices, with clean
host/guest separation, and I need to get DriveInfo out of the way for

Fortunately, the device models are perfectly happy with
BlockDriverState, except for two places: ide_drive_initfn() and
scsi_disk_initfn() need to check the DriveInfo for a serial number set
with legacy -drive serial=... Use drive_get_by_blockdev() there.

Device model code should now use DriveInfo only when explicitly
dealing with drives defined the old way, i.e. without -device.
