Add more annotation, to clearly tell the 'rte_eth_dev_info_get()'
users that the buffer should be cleared first.

v2 changes:
Add more annotation for 'rte_eth_dev_info_get()'.

Since commit http://dpdk.org/browse/dpdk/commit/?id=a30268e9a2
(ethdev: reset whole dev info structure before filling),
this patch is now useless.

Hi Thomas

OK. Good to know that. I will rework my patch based on latest master branch. Thank you very much!
