media: media_device_enum_links32: clean a reserved field

[ Upstream commit f49308878d7202e07d8761238e01bd0e5fce2750 ]

In v4l2-compliance utility, test MEDIA_IOC_ENUM_ENTITIES
will check whether reserved field of media_links_enum filled
with zero.

However, for 32 bit program, the reserved field is missing
copy from kernel space to user space in media_device_enum_links32

This patch adds the cleaning a reserved field logic in
media_device_enum_links32 function.
