crash on zookeeper_close() when using auth with empty cert

                 Key: ZOOKEEPER-466
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ZOOKEEPER-466
             Project: Zookeeper
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: c client
    Affects Versions: 3.2.0
            Reporter: Chris Darroch
             Fix For: 3.2.1

The free_auth_info() function calls deallocate_Buffer(&auth->auth) on every element
in the auth list; that function frees any memory pointed to by auth->auth.buff if that
field is non-NULL.

In zoo_add_auth(), when certLen is zero (or cert is NULL), auth.buff is set to 0, but then
not assigned to authinfo->auth when auth.buff is NULL.  The result is uninitialized data
in auth->auth.buff in free_auth_info(), and potential crashes.

The attached patch adds a test which attempts to duplicate this error; it works for me but
may not always on all systems as it depends on the uninitialized data being non-zero; there's
not really a simple way I can see to trigger this in the current test framework.  The patch
also fixes the problem, I believe.
