This breaks qemu-iotests 140 and 143:

-can't open device nbd+unix:///drv?socket=TEST_DIR/nbd: No export with name 
'drv' available
+can't open device nbd+unix:///drv?socket=TEST_DIR/nbd: Requested export not 
available for option 7 (go)
+export 'drv' not present

We could just update the reference output, but I actually believe the
old error message was better.
