v3: more descriptive name for shared subdirs

c/s 18482 made both stubdom and tools dependent on tools/ioemu-dir
to fix a race condition where both build paths might try to fetch
qemu in parallel.  But this means that even if you build the tools
with CONFIG_IOEMU=n, qemu is still fetched first.

This patch causes tools/ioemu-dir to be a dependency for tools
only if CONFIG_IOEMU is enabled.

It's still unconditional for stubdoms, as it doesn't make much sense
to build stubdoms without it.
