#3981: Add DNS preloading to .org homepage

 All of our pages make calls to `s.w.org` and `fonts.googleapis.com` for
 scripts and resources.

 On most templates, we use DNS prefetching to warm up the connection, which
 reduces load time by 200-300ms for each extra connection.

 We currently don't have this on the wordpress.org homepage.

 We should add the following code to the <head>, as early as possible.

 <link rel='dns-prefetch' href='//s.w.org' />
 <link rel='dns-prefetch' href='//fonts.googleapis.com' />
