    OPENAFS-SA-2019-002: Zero all server RPC args
    Currently, our server-side RPC argument-handling code generated from
    rxgen initializes complex arguments like so (for example, in
        AFSCBFids FidsArray;
        AFSBulkStats StatArray;
        AFSCBs CBArray;
        AFSVolSync Sync;
        FidsArray.AFSCBFids_val = 0;
        FidsArray.AFSCBFids_len = 0;
        CBArray.AFSCBs_val = 0;
        CBArray.AFSCBs_len = 0;
        StatArray.AFSBulkStats_val = 0;
        StatArray.AFSBulkStats_len = 0;
    This is done for any input or output arguments, but only for types we
    need to free afterwards (arrays, usually). We do not do this for
    simple types, like single flat structs. In the above example, we do
    this for the arrays FidsArray, StatArray, and CBArray, but 'Sync' is
    not initialized to anything.
    If some server RPC handlers never set a value for an output argument,
    this means we'll send uninitialized stack memory to our peer.
    Currently this can happen in, for example,
    MRXSTATS_RetrieveProcessRPCStats if 'rxi_monitor_processStats' is
    unset (specifically, the 'clock_sec' and 'clock_usec' arguments are
    never set when rx_enableProcessRPCStats() has not been called).
    To make sure we cannot send uninitialized data to our peer, change
    rxgen to instead 'memset(&arg, 0, sizeof(arg));' for every single
    parameter. Using memset in this way just makes this a little simpler
    inside rxgen, since all we need to do this is the name of the
    With this commit, the rxgen-generated code for the above example now
    looks like this:
        AFSCBFids FidsArray;
        AFSBulkStats StatArray;
        AFSCBs CBArray;
        AFSVolSync Sync;
        memset(&FidsArray, 0, sizeof(FidsArray));
        memset(&CBArray, 0, sizeof(CBArray));
        memset(&StatArray, 0, sizeof(StatsArray));
        memset(&Sync, 0, sizeof(Sync));
