Subject: [PATCH for-next 23/25] xfrm: Use memset_after() to clear padding

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

Clear trailing padding bytes using the new helper so that memset()
doesn't get confused about writing "past the end" of the last struct
member. There is no change to the resulting machine code.
