x86: properly initialize temp insn buffer for paravirt patching
With commit ab144f5ec64c42218a555ec1dbde6b60cf2982d6 the patching code now collects the complete new instruction stream into a temp buffer before finally patching in the new insns. In some cases the paravirt patchers will choose to leave the patch site unpatched (length mismatch, clobbers mismatch, etc). This causes the new patching code to copy an uninitialized temp buffer, i.e. garbage, to the callsite. Simply make sure to always initialize the buffer with the original instruction stream. A better fix is to audit all the patchers and return proper length so that apply_paravirt() can skip copies when we leave the patch site untouched.
