Description: The symlink flag is not initialized to 0. After unzipping a symlink, other files may be wrongly unzipped as symlinks.

Debian patch:

Additional info:
* tested package version: 6.0-12

Steps to reproduce:
1. Download ex.
2. `unzip`
3. Notice that some files get unzipped as symlinks, with their content as target. ex.: linux-rpi-4.14.y/tools/testing/selftests/timers/rtctest_setdate.c
