kvm tools: Make virt_queue__available return false if queue is not initialized

virtio_console__inject_interrupt tries to use virt queues before guest
tell us to initialize them.

                                virtio_queue is unavaiable.

Changes from v1:
- move the check of virt_queue out of virt_queue__get_iov()
