Subject: [PATCH] IB/CM: fix memory corruption by avoiding unnecessary memset

The size of path array could be dynamic. However the fixed number(2)
of memset could cause memory corruption by writing into wrong memory
space.

Fixes: 9fdca4da4d8c (IB/SA: Split struct sa_path_rec based on IB ands
	ROCE specific fields)
