      Fix for bug #13116518 - "OPEN_TABLES() SHOULD NOT ALLOCATE AND FREE 
      During the process of opening tables for a statement, we allocated
      memory which was used only during view loading even in cases when the
      statement didn't use any views. Such an unnecessary allocation (and
      corresponding freeing) might have caused significant performance
      overhead in some workloads. For example, it caused up to 15% slowdown
      in a simple stored routine calculating Fibonacci's numbers.
      This memory was pre-allocated as part of "new_frm_mem" MEM_ROOT
      initialization at the beginning of open_tables(). 
      This patch addresses this issue by turning off memory pre-allocation
      during initialization for this MEM_ROOT. Now, memory on this root
      will be allocated only at the point when the first .FRM for a view is 
      The patch doesn't contain a test case since it is hard to test the
      performance improvements or the absence of memory allocation in our
      test framework.

      bug#11758979 - 51252: ARCHIVE TABLES STILL FAIL UNDER STRESS
                            TESTS: CRASH, CORRUPTION, 4G MEMOR
      Issue: Valgrind errors due to checksum and optimize
             query against archive tables with null columns.
             Table record buffer was not initialized.
      Solution: Initialize the record buffer.

No bundle (reason: useless for push emails).
