[PVE-User] /dev/disk/by-path/ paths not working in 1.4

I just migrated one server from 1.3 to 1.4, and suddenly, KVM guests are failing to start.

In the config file, I was using paths like:

scsi0: /dev/disk/by-path/ip-

which was working with Proxmox VE 1.3.

With 1.4, it doesn't work anymore and fails with:

# qm start 115
storage '/dev/disk/by-path/ip-' does not exists

Looks like it breaks somewhere on parsing when it finds ":".

I'm aware that iSCSI is supposed to be used in a different was, but still, everything what's in /dev/disk/by-path
or /dev/disk/by-id is a valid path which can be used without problems by other system tools.
