Our Coverity scan pointed out that path[] is never initialized.
The official DPDK Coverity has not reported this so there is
no public CID for it.

Fixes: c44d09811b40 ("eal: add shared indexed file-backed array")

I double checked and I can confirm that this wasn't picked up by any of the public scans, even though 4 other issues in that file were. So thanks for the fix.

Logging a fd number won't help much, but I guess this was not really
helpful with path[] either :-).
If we keep this log, I would move it to the callers of the functions,
where the filename is available.

Can this be taken for 21.02? I realize the log isn’t that useful, but it doesn’t seem worth it (to me at least) to do much more work on it.
