The v2 series used to do that, but Christoph complained that having a
helper for a two-line memset and initialization was silly[1] so now we
have this version.

I don't mind reinstating it as a static inline helper, but I'd like some
input from any of the btrfs developers (or you, Al) about which form is
preferred.
