Valgrind isn't convinced that we are initializing the values we assign
to env->spr[spr] because it doesn't understand that the 'val' union is
being written by the kvm_vcpu_ioctl() that follows (via struct

This results in Valgrind complaining about uninitialized values every
time we use env->spr in a conditional, like this instance:

==707578==  Uninitialised value was created by a stack allocation
==707578==    at 0xB11F08: kvm_get_one_spr (kvm.c:543)

Initializing 'val' has no impact in the logic and makes Valgrind output
more bearable.
