Actually the main reason I worry about lazy init is simply that
we've screwed up DBIs many times, so I prefer to go slowly.
That's Howard's call though, not mine.
Maybe a good way in between could be to memcpy
txn->mt_env->me_dbflags. However md_flags would need to be moved out
of the MDB_dbi struct like mt_dbflags or easier just add another array
serving as snapshot. This would not break anything with flag
initialization as we get a snapshot of them in the mdb_txn_renew0.
memcpy uses SSE instructions for x86_64. We should consider to align
on 16 byte boundary for best performance.
The dbflags could then still be initialized with MDB_UNSUSED as suggested.
