crypto: testmgr - don't try to decrypt uninitialized buffers
Currently if the comparison fuzz tests encounter an encryption error when generating an skcipher or AEAD test vector, they will still test the decryption side (passing it the uninitialized ciphertext buffer) and expect it to fail with the same error. This is sort of broken because it's not well-defined usage of the API to pass an uninitialized buffer, and furthermore in the AEAD case it's acceptable for the decryption error to be EBADMSG (meaning "inauthentic input") even if the encryption error was something else like EINVAL. Fix this for skcipher by explicitly initializing the ciphertext buffer on error, and for AEAD by skipping the decryption test on error.
