Idle page zeroing committed

Venkatesh Srinivas has been working on idle page zeroing; his work has been committed, and if enabled, should contribute to a teeny speedup.  What’s it do?  It gets memory ready for use when the CPU is not otherwise busy, so that less time is needed to allocate that memory.  It looks like there’s more work on the way, too.
