Bugzilla: 1145055

"vmstate_xhci_event" was introduced in commit 37352df3 ("xhci: add live
migration support"), and first released in v1.6.0. The field list in this
VMSD is not terminated with the VMSTATE_END_OF_LIST() macro.

During normal use (ie. migration), the issue is practically invisible,
because the "vmstate_xhci_event" object (with the unterminated field list)
is only ever referenced -- via "vmstate_xhci_intr" -- if xhci_er_full()
returns true, for the "ev_buffer" test. Since that field_exists() check
(apparently) almost always returns false, we almost never traverse
"vmstate_xhci_event" during migration, which hides the bug.

However, Amit's vmstate checker forces recursion into this VMSD as well,
and the lack of VMSTATE_END_OF_LIST() breaks the field list terminator
check (field->name != NULL) in dump_vmstate_vmsd(). The result is
undefined behavior, which in my case translates to infinite recursion
(because the loop happens to overflow into "vmstate_xhci_intr", which then
links back to "vmstate_xhci_event").

Add the missing terminator.
