Most struct child_process variables are cleared using memset right after

initialize them statically instead.  That's shorter, doesn't require a
function call and is slightly more readable (especially given that we
already have similar macros like STRBUF_INIT, ARGV_ARRAY_INIT etc.).

I think one reason we never had an INIT macro here is that you cannot
simply use the struct after zero-ing it anyway. That's just the first
step, and then you have to tweak a bunch of fields to get what you want.
So the memset is just one setup line out of many.

Some (or most?) of these steps could be converted to named
initializers -- once all supported platforms provide them..
