[Mesa-dev] [PATCH 1/3 v3] anv/descriptor_set: Fix binding partly undefined descriptor sets

Section 13.2.3. of the Vulkan spec requires that implementations be able to
bind sparsely-defined Descriptor Sets without any errors or exceptions.

When binding a descriptor set that contains a dynamic buffer binding/descriptor,
the driver attempts to dereference the descriptor's buffer_view field if it is
non-NULL. It currently segfaults on undefined descriptors as this field is never
zero-initialized. Zero undefined descriptors to avoid segfaulting. This
solution was suggested by Jason Ekstrand.
