That would probably be OK. It's a bit more aggressive, which could
matter if you have a large number of very small bitmaps. My original
goal of the "grow less aggressively" patch was to keep memory usage
down, knowing that I was going to be holding a lot of bitmaps in memory
at once. But even with micro-optimizations like this, it turned out to
be far too big in practice (and hence Stolee's work on top to reduce the
total number we hold at once).

I think the real test would be measuring the peak heap of the series as
you posted it in v2, and this version replacing this patch (and the
"grow less aggressively" one) with ALLOC_GROW(). On something big, like
repacking all of the torvalds/linux or git/git fork networks.

If there's no appreciable difference, then definitely I think it's worth
the simplicity of reusing ALLOC_GROW().
