From: David Gibson <david@gibson.dropbear.id.au>

If a guest passes the reg property of a valid VIO object that is not a VTY
to either H_GET_TERM_CHAR or H_PUT_TERM_CHAR, QEMU hits a dynamic cast
assertion and aborts.

PAPR+ says "Hypervisor checks the termno parameter for validity against the
Vterm IOA unit addresses assigned to the partition, else return H_Parameter."

This patch adds a type check to ensure vty_lookup() either returns a pointer
to a valid VTY object or NULL.  H_GET_TERM_CHAR and H_PUT_TERM_CHAR will
now return H_PARAMETER to the guest instead of crashing.

The patch has no effect on the reg == 0 hack used to implement the RTAS call
