Did you see an issue (a bug or a crash) without the memset()?
Or is it to avoid filling unused fields in the parsed struct?

I'm not sure if your patch is enough: cmdline_parse() calls match_inst()
for each registered command. If a command partially matches (only the
first tokens), the buffer is modified. So the next one will start
with a dirty buffer.

I suggest to put the memset() in match_inst() instead. Something
like this:

	if (resbuf != NULL)
		memset(resbuf, 0, resbuf_size);


It will reset the buffer before using it.

Yes, I'm using same struct for some similar commands, have to avoid filling 
unused fields.

It was there for performance concern, since the buffer could be tainted, I'll
upload a new version according to your suggestion, appreciate your suggestion.

Rte_flow CLI seems to be relying on modified buffer, add Adrien:
testpmd> flow create 0 ingress pattern eth  / ipv4 / udp / vxlan / end actions rss queues 1 2 end level 1 / mark id 0x123456  / end
Caught error type 2 (flow rule (handle)): no valid action

While the flow command relies on the contents of this buffer when parsing
tokens, it doesn't expect it to be maintained across match_inst() calls.

In fact another issue prevents Olivier's suggestion from working.
Commit 9b3fbb051d2e ("cmdline: fix parsing") is supposed prevent further
match_inst() calls after the right inst is found but doesn't break
cmdline_parse()'s loop; subsequent iterations clear the result buffer.

Here's a suggestion to try:
