A set of IRDMA_CQP_SW_SQSIZE_2048 (i.e. 2048) 'cqp_request' are
pre-allocated and zeroed in 'irdma_create_cqp()' (hw.c).  These
structures are managed with the 'cqp->cqp_avail_reqs' list which keeps
track of available entries.

In 'irdma_free_cqp_request()' (utils.c), when an entry is recycled and goes
back to the 'cqp_avail_reqs' list, some fields are reseted.

However, one of these fields, 'compl_info', is initialized within

Move the corresponding memset to 'irdma_free_cqp_request()' so that the
clean-up is done in only one place. This makes the logic more easy to

This also saves this memset in the case that the 'cqp_avail_reqs' list is
empty and a new 'cqp_request' structure must be allocated. This memset is
useless, because the structure is already kzalloc'ed.
