Yes, this is a measurable degradation in going from gcc 4.9 -> 5.0 with myrocks
DB. Apparently 25% more queries/sec with gcc 4.9 (I think it's from a
benchmark). Profiling (by others) has fingered this optimization.
I am in the process of implementing a check to see if the only condition
between the malloc and memset is 'ptr != 0'.
I noticed the crazy default probabilities during investigating this. I think
that's really a second-order problem.
