do_ip_vs_set_ctl() is referencing uninitialized stack value when `len` is
zero. Fix it.

Changes in v2:
    - Target net-next tree. (Suggested by Julian Anastasov <ja at ssi.bg>)
    - Reject all `len == 0` requests except `IP_VS_SO_SET_FLUSH`, instead
      of initializing `arg`. (Suggested by Cong Wang
      <xiyou.wangcong at gmail.com>, Julian Anastasov <ja at ssi.bg>)
