`struct vmci_event_qp` allocated by qp_notify_peer() contains padding,
which may carry uninitialized data to the userspace, as observed by

  Bytes 28-31 of 48 are uninitialized
  Memory access of size 48 starts at ffff888035155e00
  Data copied to user address 0000000020000100

Use memset() to prevent the infoleaks.

Also speculatively fix qp_notify_peer_local(), which may suffer from the
same problem.
