Add libvirt glusterfs support.

I've attached a solution using a split package (like used in Fedora/RHEL for storage backend drivers).
It is possible to just add glusterfs support to configure, but then load of the shared object will add an error to the log when loading without glusterfs installed:
error : virDriverLoadModuleFile:58 : failed to load module /usr/lib/libvirt/storage-backend/ cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

As I see the RPM spec file for libvirt, the other backends can be added in the same matter.

Whether the optional dependency to qemu-block-gluster should be there I don't know, but having the qemu package as optdepends will probably save some users from a goosechase when it won't work due to missing QEMU support.
This task depends upon

I can see, that I forgot to add libvirt-glusterfs as an optional dependency to libvirt.

Thanks for your patch and sorry for the delay. I will have a look on it the next days.
