To reproduce:

  emacs -Q
  C-h h
  C-f C-f C-f ....

You will see a ~0.5 sec delay after each C-f, before its effect of
extending the region is visible.  The reason is GC after every
keystroke, and it seems to be caused by the changes in commit 479f51a.
That commit caused mode-line-default-help-echo to be called each time
Emacs needs to redisplay the mode line, and that seems to produce lots
of garbage, at least with the HELLO file.

If this function cannot be optimized to produce less garbage, could we
perhaps somehow cache the value of the help-echo and not recalculate
it unless something really changed?

OK, I installed the fix on the release branch.  Thanks.
