Follow-up Comment #1, patch #9307 (project lwip):

> Aside from reducing code

That seems overrated: calloc has more parameters than malloc, so your patch
might gain some 32 bytes of code or so...

Nevertheless, I don't really care :-) Just go ahead and push it! There are
probably other places where zeroing the memory wouldn't hurt (performance).

We haven't thought about security risks (by not zeroing memory) in the past
though, since lwIP (by definition) runs in a single address space where all
pool or heap memory is readable by all threads...
