Yes. The problem is that when support for -r was added, it was
forgotten that the code so far assumed there was a KVM session
open. With -r, kgdb does not open a KVM session. This causes
various NULL-pointer dereferences. The fix is to check first if
a KVM session is open and do whatever is appropriate in that
