qcrypto_tls_creds_load_cert() passes uninitialized GError *gerr by
reference to g_file_get_contents().  When g_file_get_contents() fails,
it'll try to set a GError.  Unless @gerr is null by dumb luck, this
logs a ERROR_OVERWRITTEN_WARNING warning message and leaves @gerr
unchanged.  qcrypto_tls_creds_load_cert() then dereferences the
uninitialized @gerr.

Fix by initializing @gerr properly.

I didn't check the logic in commit message (and I don't know how GError works),
but initializing local pointer to NULL never hurts:
