Subject: [PATCH v2 39/63] ipv6: Use memset_after() to zero rt6_info

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() to clear everything after the dst_entry member of
struct rt6_info.
