Allow KVM to boot from HTTP

New versions of KVM support booting from HTTP-hosted ISO images, via
libcurl. This patch adds a proper check to allow defining either a sane,
absolute path or an HTTP URL as an iso image path.

Remove "format=raw" from the cdrom device options when iso_image starts
with "(https?|ftps?)://", to allow latest KVM versions (qemu-kvm) to boot
from HTTP-hosted iso images. Added FILE_OR_URL check to allow booting
from HTTP (kvm).
