[PATCH 2/3] tools: avoid potential null pointer dereference by GCC 10



GCC 10 complains about "arg" possibly being a NULL dereference.
Even though it might be a false positive, we can easily avoid it.

 ../tools/vsh.c: In function ‘vshCommandOptStringReq’:

  1034 |     else if (!*arg->data && !(arg->def->flags & VSH_OFLAG_EMPTY_OK))
       |                ~~~^~~~~~
