Hmm, yes, we could.  But (i) gnulib's malloc works by allocating 1
byte when 0 are requested, so would introduce small errors into our GC
counting, (ii) I think it's quite easy anyway just to avoid making the
0-byte malloc calls.

The avoidance patch apparently works, so I will go ahead with that for
now.  We can always come back to the gnulib approach if we need to in
