bhyve: Move the gdb_active check to gdb_cpu_suspend().

Details

Summary

The check needs to be in the public routine (gdb_cpu_suspend()), not
in the internal routine called from various places
(_gdb_cpu_suspend()). All the other callers of _gdb_cpu_suspend()
already check gdb_active, and this breaks the use of snapshots when
the debug server is not enabled since gdb_cpu_suspend() tries to lock
an uninitialized mutex.
