You are right on that I should fill in something at [1]..

Because @vcpu can be NULL (if you continue to read this patch, you'll
see sometimes NULL is passed in), and we at least need a context to
mark the dirty ring. That's also why we need a per-vm dirty ring to
be the fallback of the cases where we don't have vcpu context.
