When glibc is built with memory tagging support (USE_MTAG) but it is not
enabled at runtime (mtag_enabled) then unconditional memset was used
even though that can be often avoided.

This is for performance when tagging is supported but not enabled.
The extra check should have no overhead: tag_new_zero_region already
had a runtime check which the compiler can now optimize away.
