vbnv: Do not initialize vbnv_copy in vbnv layer
If read_vbnv finds that the vbnv_copy is not valid, it initializes it with the correct HEADER_SIGNATURE and other attributes. However, the vbnv copy is checked for validity and initialized at the vboot layer as well. Since, vboot is the owner of this data, it should be the one initializing it. Thus, if read_vbnv sees that the data is not valid, simply reset it to all 0s and let vboot layer take care of it. This also removes the need for additional checks to ensure that the dirty vbnv copy is properly updated on storage.
