net: ax25: fix information leak to userland

Sometimes ax25_getname() doesn't initialize all members of fsa_digipeater
field of fsa struct, also the struct has padding bytes between
sax25_call and sax25_ndigis fields.  This structure is then copied to
userland.  It leads to leaking of contents of kernel stack memory.
