qht: do not segfault when gathering stats from an uninitialized qht
So far, QHT functions assume that the passed qht has previously been initialized--otherwise they segfault. This patch makes an exception for qht_statistics_init, with the goal of simplifying calling code. For instance, qht_statistics_init is called from the 'info jit' dump, and given that under KVM the TB qht is never initialized, we get a segfault. Thus, instead of complicating the 'info jit' code with additional checks, let's allow passing an uninitialized qht to qht_statistics_init. While at it, add a test for this to test-qht. Before the patch (for $ qemu -enable-kvm [...]): (qemu) info jit [...] direct jump count 0 (0%) (2 jumps=0 0%) Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault. After the patch the "TB hash buckets", "TB hash occupancy" and "TB hash avg chain" lines are omitted. (qemu) info jit [...] direct jump count 0 (0%) (2 jumps=0 0%) TB hash buckets 0/0 (-nan% head buckets used) TB hash occupancy nan% avg chain occ. Histogram: (null) TB hash avg chain nan buckets.
