Reduced test case

It appears Clang does not default-initialize all elements of an array. The
attached program passes with gcc but fails with Clang built from r106806
(x86-64 Linux).

If I install a malloc() that poisons memory, something like "new int[2]()"
should zero out both bytes. Clang currently only zeros the first element.

The problem reproduces easily when linking against tcmalloc's debug allocator:

0) Install tcmalloc from
http://google-perftools.googlecode.com/files/google-perftools-1.5.tar.gz to
1) clang -lstdc++ -L/tmp/tcmalloc/lib -Wl,--rpath=/tmp/tcmalloc/lib
-ltcmalloc_debug intrusive_hash_map_test.cc -o intrusive_hash_map_test &&
./intrusive_hash_map_test && echo "Test passed"

The program fails with an assertion error when compiled with Clang.
