Subject: [PATCH] target/i386/kvm: Silence warning from Valgrind about uninitialized bytes
Date: Tue, 24 Sep 2019 09:47:38 +0200

When I run QEMU with KVM under Valgrind, I currently get this warning:

 Syscall param ioctl(generic) points to uninitialised byte(s)
    at 0x95BA45B: ioctl (in /usr/lib64/libc-2.28.so)

  Address 0x1ffeffee74 is on thread 1's stack
  in frame #2, created by kvm_arch_get_supported_msr_feature (kvm.c:445)

It's harmless, but a little bit annoying, so silence it by properly
initializing the whole structure with zeroes.
