uci: reset uci_ptr flags when merging set operations

In some cases, e.g. when subsequently setting multiple empty option
values, uci_set() might free the section pointer of the given reused
uci_ptr structure without zeroing it, leading to a use-after-free on
processing subsequent options.

Avoid this issue by clearing the lookup pointer flags in order to
prevent uci_set() from incorrectly branching into a uci_delete()
operation leading to the freeing of the section member.
