Subject[PATCH net v2] vsock: fix potential null pointer dereference in vsock_poll()
syzbot reported this issue where in the vsock_poll() we find the
socket state at TCP_ESTABLISHED, but 'transport' is null:
general protection fault, probably for non-canonical address 0xdffffc0000000012: 0000 [#1] PREEMPT SMP KASAN
KASAN: null-ptr-deref in range [0x0000000000000090-0x0000000000000097]

This issue can happen if the TCP_ESTABLISHED state is set after we read
the vsk->transport in the vsock_poll().

We could put barriers to synchronize, but this can only happen during
connection setup, so we can simply check that 'transport' is valid.
