Subject: [PATCH] i386: avoid null pointer dereference

    Hello,

A null pointer dereference issue was reported by Mr Ling Liu, CC'd here. It
occurs while doing I/O port write operations via hmp interface. In that,
'current_cpu' remains null as it is not called from cpu_exec loop, which
results in the said issue.

Below is a proposed (tested)patch to fix this issue; Does it look okay?

Subject: [PATCH] i386: avoid null pointer dereference

When I/O port write operation is called from hmp interface,
'current_cpu' remains null, as it is not called from cpu_exec()
loop. This leads to a null pointer dereference in vapic_write
routine. Add check to avoid it.
