These don't look good for two reasons: (1) you could leave BSS
to do the 0 initialization; (2) you need to change this if you
need to change the shape of "struct object_hash" later.

I am partly at fault, but I think we should have a consolidated
bit assignment policy in place before introducing new users of
object flags.  Some older code says in their comments that
revision.h reserves lower 8 bits while others say 16.  I offhand
know who is correct X-<.
