While preparing some patches for implementing support for negative refspecs,
I found a couple of minor nits. The first patch fixes the documentation in
refspec.h to refer to the correct structures. The second patch cleans up a
potential issue with refspec_item structures that weren't initialized
properly. While nothing breaks today, future extensions to refspec_item
would break if the structure wasn't properly initialized to zero.

  refspec: fix documentation referring to refspec_item

In commit d27eb356bf25 ("remote: move doc to remote.h and refspec.h")
the documentation for the refspec structure was moved into refspec.h

This documentation refers to elements of the refspec_item, not the
struct refspec. Move the documentation slightly in order to align it
with the structure it is actually referring to.

From: Jacob Keller <jacob.keller@gmail.com>

A couple of functions that used struct refspec_item did not zero out the
structure memory. This can result in unexpected behavior, especially if
additional parameters are ever added to refspec_item in the future. Use
memset to ensure that unset structure members are zero.

It may make sense to convert most of these uses of struct refspec_item
to use either struct initializers or refspec_item_init_or_die. However,
other similar code uses memset. Converting all of these uses has been
left as a future exercise.
