A common idiom in kernel code is to wipe the contents of a structure
after a given member. This includes places where there is trailing
struct padding. These open-coded cases are usually difficult to read and
very sensitive to struct layout changes. Introduce a new helper,
memset_after() that takes the target struct instance, the byte to
write, and the member name after which the zeroing should start.
