    qemu: Fix name comparison in qemuMonitorJSONBlockIoThrottleInfo()
    
    The string comparison logic was inverted and matched the first drive
    that does *not* have the name we search for.

    qemu: Keep QEMU host drive prefix in BlkIoTune
    
    The QEMU -drive id= begins with libvirt's QEMU host drive prefix
    ("drive-"), which is stripped off in several places two convert between
    host ("-drive") and guest ("-device") device names.
    
    In the case of BlkIoTune it is unnecessary to strip the QEMU host drive
    prefix because we operate on "info block"/"query-block" output that uses
    host drive names.
    
    Stripping the prefix incorrectly caused string comparisons to fail since
    we were comparing the guest device name against the host device name.
