A simple fix for this bugs

In sys/rpc/svc_vc.c() file, the return value of svc_xprt_alloc() is not checked
before the dereference in svc_vc_create_conn() function,
svc_vc_create_backchannel() function and svc_vc_create(). svc_xprt_alloc()
could return NULL on failure of allocation, which could lead to NULL pointer

Fix this bugs by adding checks of svc_xprt_alloc() in all three functions.
