[S390] vmur: add "top of queue" sanity check for reader open

If the z/VM reader is already open, it can happen that after opening the
Linux reader device, not the topmost file is processed. According the
semantics of the Linux z/VM unit record device driver, always the topmost
file has to be processed. With this fix an error is returned if that is
not the case.
