Subject[PATCH v2] KVM: s390: kvm_s390_vm_start_migration: check dirty_bitmap before using it as target for memset()
If userspace doesn't set KVM_MEM_LOG_DIRTY_PAGES on memslot before calling
kvm_s390_vm_start_migration(), kernel will oops with:

Unable to handle kernel pointer dereference in virtual kernel address space
Failing address: 0000000000000000 TEID: 0000000000000483
Fault in home space mode while using kernel ASCE.

due to ms->dirty_bitmap being NULL, which might crash the host.

Make sure that ms->dirty_bitmap is set before using it or
return -ENIVAL otherwise.
