libavfilter/filtfmts-test crashes with dynamically allocated input pads

Summary of bug

Some filters like fieldmatch does not have statically alloc'd input pads (i.e. AVFilter.inputs = NULL), and they dynamically add input pads in AVFilter.init(). libavfilter/filtfmts-test chokes on that.

I found this bug while trying to add FATE test for fieldmatch.

How to reproduce
