ircd exploit in ircu based code

Most irc networks using ircu based servers have a bug that can cause users
to segfault the server.

In m_join, the code doesn't check to see if get_channel returned failure (by
returning NULL).

While the line numbers will probably be off, this patch will work in most
ircu based servers.
