Subject: [PATCH v2 50/63] tracing: Use memset_startat() to zero struct trace_iterator

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

Use memset_startat() to avoid confusing memset() about writing beyond
the target struct member.
