'-sandbox off'  is just syntax sugar for '-sandbox enable=off', with
the default arg name handled by QemuOpts.

If we want to keep ability to run "-sandbox off" we should do it via
the QEMU opts code we already have in the first part of the conditional,
so that "-sandbox enable=off" also works as normal.

Essentially we need to push the #ifdef CONFIG_SECCOMP down into the
parse_sandbox method, so that it parses the "enable" option normally
but rejects any value except disabled..

The QemuOptsList should also be conditional to only register the
"enable"  arg and not the other bits.
