Make create_zone non-static.
Then link the zone into the zone list somewhere (we could make a function
to do this), like so:

new_zone->next_zone = main_zone->next_zone;
main_zone->next_zone = new_zone;

You also need to change one thing in ggc_collect to make it walk the zone
list instead of explicitly specifying each zone to collect.

It's a net code removal to do so, anyway.

I'll work more on the zone collector soon, hopefully.
I need to find an x86-64 to fix the bootstrap problem.
