    On my platform, this sped up (make-string 4000000000 0) from 2.5
    to 0.015 seconds (not that people should want to do this much :-).
    * src/alloc.c (allocate_string_data): New arg CLEARIT.
    Callers changed.
    (Fmake_string): Prefer calloc to malloc+memset when allocating a
    large string of NUL bytes.
    (make_clear_string): New function.
    (make_uninit_string): Use it.
    (make_clear_multibyte_string): New function.
    (make_uninit_multibyte_string): Use it.
