[dpdk-dev] [PATCH] test: fix uninitialized parameter in table autotest

delete_bulk() copies metadata to pointers provided by the entries
parameter, but in the unit test, they are uninitialized, leading
to rte_table attempting to memcpy into random garbage pointers.

Memsetting pointer table to zero will prevent that from happening.
