net/rds: Fix info leak in rds6_inc_info_copy()

[ Upstream commit 7d0a06586b2686ba80c4a2da5f91cb10ffbea736 ]

The rds6_inc_info_copy() function has a couple struct members which
are leaking stack information.  The ->tos field should hold actual
information and the ->flags field needs to be zeroed out.
