MemorySanitizer: use-of-uninitialized-value in DecApp.cpp

When reading an InputNAL, only its type is initialized to NAL_UNIT_INVALID.
Alas, its layer id is not initialized (should be 0).

This can cause difference in decoding process.

Reported by Memory Sanitizer:

Uninitialized value was created by an allocation of 'nalu' in the stack frame of function '_ZN6DecApp6decodeEv'

SUMMARY: MemorySanitizer: use-of-uninitialized-value /tmp/update-vtm-131/vtm.msan/build/../source/Lib/CommonLib/../DecoderLib/DecLib.h:196:61 in DecLib::getFirstSliceInSequence(int) const

Fix is simply to call NAL ctor with NAL_UNIT_INVALID in InputNAL ctor.
