PCI: Fix oops in pci_vpd_truncate

pci_vpd_truncate() should check for dev->vpd->attr, otherwise this might

sky2 driver version 1.22
Unable to handle kernel paging request for data at address 0x0000000c
Faulting instruction address: 0xc01836fc
Oops: Kernel access of bad area, sig: 11 [#1]
NIP [c01836fc] pci_vpd_truncate+0x38/0x40

This happens with CONFIG_SKY2=y, and "ip=on" kernel command line, so
pci_vpd_truncate() is called before late_initcall(pci_sysfs_init),
therefore ->attr isn't yet initialized.
