One multifd channel will shutdown all the other multifd's IOChannel when it
fails to receive an IOChannel. In this senario, if some multifds had not
received its IOChannel yet, it would try to shutdown its IOChannel which could
cause nullptr access at qio_channel_shutdown.

Here is the coredump stack:

    #13 0x00005563fd74fd45 in main (argc=<optimized out>, argv=<optimized out>, envp=<optimized out>) at vl.c:4473

To fix it up, let's check p->c before calling qio_channel_shutdown.
