[libvirt] [PATCH 3/3] virsh: make 'help' command ignore spurious options



Similar to the previous patch, prepending 'help' to a partial
command string doesn't cut us any slack.

$ virsh help pool-define-as --name foo --type dir
error: command 'help' doesn't support option --name

This patch adds a few hacks to make 'help' ignore everything after the
first data bit, so the above command shows help output for pool-define-as.
