Subject: [PATCH v2 bpf 11/11] samples/bpf: xdpsock: fix -Wmaybe-uninitialized

Fix two sort-of-false-positives in the xdpsock userspace part:

samples/bpf/xdpsock_user.c: In function 'main':
samples/bpf/xdpsock_user.c:1531:47: warning: 'tv_usec' may be used uninitialized in this function [-Wmaybe-uninitialized]
 1531 |                         pktgen_hdr->tv_usec = htonl(tv_usec);
      |                                               ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~

      |                                              ^~~~~~~~~~~~~
samples/bpf/xdpsock_user.c:1500:18: note: 'tv_sec' was declared here
 1500 |         u32 idx, tv_sec, tv_usec;
      |                  ^~~~~~

Both variables are always initialized when @opt_tstamp == true and
they're being used also only when @opt_tstamp == true. However, that
variable comes from the BSS and is being toggled from another
function. They can't be executed simultaneously to actually trigger
undefined behaviour, but purely technically it is a correct warning.
Just initialize them with zeroes.
