Subject: CVE request: kvm: update_cr8_intercept() NULL pointer dereference
 when running without an apic

Quote from the upstream commit:
"update_cr8_intercept() can be triggered from userspace while there
is no apic present."

This one can be triggered via kvm_vcpu_ioctl() if /dev/kvm is user 
accessible (which is recommended...). Fixed in v2.6.32-rc1.
