Subject[PATCH] KVM: SVM: Initialize ir_list and ir_list_lock regardless of AVIC enablement
The struct vcpu_svm.ir_list and ir_list_lock are being accessed even when
AVIC is not enabled, while current code only initialize the list and
the lock only when AVIC is enabled. This ended up trigger NULL pointer
dereference bug in the function vm_ir_list_del with the following
call trace:

svm_update_pi_irte+0x3c2/0x550 [kvm_amd]
? proc_create_single_data+0x41/0x50
kvm_arch_irq_bypass_add_producer+0x40/0x60 [kvm]
__connect+0x5f/0xb0 [irqbypass]
irq_bypass_register_producer+0xf8/0x120 [irqbypass]
vfio_msi_set_vector_signal+0x1de/0x2d0 [vfio_pci]
vfio_msi_set_block+0x77/0xe0 [vfio_pci]
vfio_pci_set_msi_trigger+0x25c/0x2f0 [vfio_pci]
vfio_pci_set_irqs_ioctl+0x88/0xb0 [vfio_pci]
vfio_pci_ioctl+0x2ea/0xed0 [vfio_pci]
? alloc_file_pseudo+0xa5/0x100
vfio_device_fops_unl_ioctl+0x26/0x30 [vfio]
? vfio_device_fops_unl_ioctl+0x26/0x30 [vfio]

Therefore, move the initialziation code before checking for AVIC enabled
so that it is always excuted.
