Subject[PATCH] KVM: LAPIC: Fix pv ipis use-before-initialization
Reported by syzkaller:

BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 0000000000000014
PGD 800000040410c067 P4D 800000040410c067 PUD 40410d067 PMD 0
Oops: 0000 [#1] PREEMPT SMP PTI
CPU: 3 PID: 2567 Comm: poc Tainted: G OE 4.19.0-rc5 #16
RIP: 0010:kvm_pv_send_ipi+0x94/0x350 [kvm]
Call Trace:
kvm_emulate_hypercall+0x3cc/0x700 [kvm]
handle_vmcall+0xe/0x10 [kvm_intel]
vmx_handle_exit+0xc1/0x11b0 [kvm_intel]
vcpu_enter_guest+0x9fb/0x1910 [kvm]
kvm_arch_vcpu_ioctl_run+0x35c/0x610 [kvm]
kvm_vcpu_ioctl+0x3e9/0x6d0 [kvm]

The reason is that the apic map has not yet been initialized, the testcase
triggers pv_send_ipi interface by vmcall which results in kvm->arch.apic_map
is dereferenced. This patch fixes it by checking whether or not apic map is
NULL and bailing out immediately if that is the case.
