net: zero kobject in rx_queue_release

netif_set_real_num_rx_queues() can decrement and increment
the number of rx queues. For example ixgbe does this as
features and offloads are toggled. Presumably this could
also happen across down/up on most devices if the available
resources changed (cpu offlined).

The kobject needs to be zero'd in this case so that the
state is not preserved across kobject_put()/kobject_init_and_add().

This resolves the following error report.

ixgbe 0000:03:00.0: eth2: NIC Link is Up 10 Gbps, Flow Control: RX/TX
kobject (ffff880324b83210): tried to init an initialized object, something is seriously wrong.
