virtio: console: Don't access vqs if device was unplugged

If a virtio-console device gets unplugged while a port is open, a
subsequent close() call on the port accesses vqs to free up buffers.
This can lead to a crash.

The buffers are already freed up as a result of the call to
unplug_ports() from virtcons_remove().  The fix is to simply not access
vq information if port->portdev is NULL.
