[collectd] [PATCH] libvirt HostnameFormat is wrong at the moment

The attached patch fixes HostnameFormat in libvirt driver.

The intended use for this was:

   HostnameFormat "name"

generating hostnames like "<guestname>" (the default case), and:

   HostnameFormat "hostname name"

generating hostnames like "<hostname>:<guestname>".

Somewhere along the way, however, that code got broken so it always adds 
a ":" before the name, and doesn't concatenate any more, so you'd get 
weird hostnames appearing like ":guest" which was supposed to be 

The patch just reverts back to my original code.
