cros-ec: Avoid infinitely looping in google_chromeec_pd_get_amode

Currently, google_chromeec_pd_get_amode infinitely loops if a TCPC port
is connected to a device with alternate mode(s) and the call is made
for the mode with the index higher than 0 (e.g. Zinger).

Cros EC manages alternative modes entered in an array (amode[]). The
command is designed to accept a query for an particular index and a
particular SVID.

Zinger has a 'Google' mode. It's stored in amode[0]. When AP queries
first time for DisplayPort with index=0, EC says 'no' as expected.

AP sends the next query with index=1 but EC_CMD_PROTO_VERSION (0x00)
is sent instead because cmd_code is cleared by google_chromeec_command.
res.svid is supposed to be 0 when EC hits the last index + 1 but
res.svid is set to 2 by the EC_CMD_PROTO_VERSION handler because
EC_PROTO_VERSION is currently 2. So, the call succeeds and AP goes to
the next index and this repeats forever.

Any USB-C device with non-DisplayPort alternate mode can cause this
hang unless HDMI port is used.

This patch resets all the fields of chromeec_command in each iteration
in case google_chromeec_command changes them.

TEST=Verify Fizz boots without monitors on Zinger. Verify the svid
enumeration happens as expected.
