In preparation for FORTIFY_SOURCE performing compile-time and run-time
field bounds checking for memset(), avoid intentionally writing across
neighboring fields.

Use memset_after() so memset() doesn't get confused about writing
beyond the destination member that is intended to be the starting point
of zeroing through the end of the struct.

The old code seems to be doing the wrong thing: starting from not the
first member, but sized for the whole struct. Which is correct?

Quick ping on this question.

The old code seems to be doing the wrong thing: it starts from the second
member and writes beyond int_info, clobbering qede_lock:

struct qede_dev {
        ...
        struct qed_int_info             int_info;

        /* Smaller private variant of the RTNL lock */
        struct mutex                    qede_lock;
        ...


struct qed_int_info {
        struct msix_entry       *msix;
        u8                      msix_cnt;

        /* This should be updated by the protocol driver */
        u8                      used_cnt;
};

Should this also clear the "msix" member, or should this not write
beyond int_info? This patch does the latter.
