[dpdk-dev] [PATCH v3 2/3] app/testpmd: fix RSS structure initialisation

Struct rss_conf.rss_key_len is not initialised forcing the user to verify
the rss_conf.rss_key pointer to know if the key is present or not.
rss_conf.rss_key_len should have a valid length according to the size of
the rss_key pointed.

Fixes: 560e02ee5237 ("app/testpmd: configure RSS without restart")
