	Rewrite most of GHashTable to use open addressing with quadratic
	probing instead of chaining. This has the potential to reduce memory
	fragmentation significantly, while being slightly faster due to
	better locality and no need to call alloc/free functions for nodes.
	Benchmarks suggest it also uses less memory overall.

	* glib/ghash.c (prime_mod): Table of suitable primes for
	initial-probe distribution.
	(g_hash_table_set_shift): New function.
	(g_hash_table_find_closest_shift): New function.
	(g_hash_table_set_shift_from_size): New function.
	(g_hash_table_lookup_node_for_insertion): New function.
	(g_hash_table_lookup_node): Rewritten to return node index instead of
	pointer, use quadratic probe on flat table, and not return insertion
	data. The latter saves some computation for read-only lookups.
	(g_hash_table_remove_node): Rewrite to take a pointer directly to the
	node structure to remove, and clear that. Remove unlinking code.
	(g_hash_table_remove_all_nodes): Rewrite to not clear nodes
	individually, but en masse using memset () after potentially calling
	notify functions.
	(iter_remove_or_steal): Use new data structure and algorithm. Vastly
	simplified - now just a call to g_hash_table_remove_node ().
	(g_hash_table_resize): New resize code, re-indexing with new prime
	and cleaning up tombstones.
	(g_hash_table_maybe_resize): Table may hold 8 buckets minimum, no less
	than 1/4 load excluding tombstones, and no more than 15/16 load
	including tombstones. These numbers are the results of a lot of
	benchmarking with multiple complex applications, and should not be
