#5072: Forum posts should prefetch gravatar.com

 Forum posts, such as https://wordpress.org/support/topic/fb-login-doesnt-
 work-mobile/, load user a JS file (gprofiles.js) from gravatar.com. This
 is a cold connection to an external domain, and as such is noteably slow.

 We should address this by adding a DNS prefetch tag to the `<head>`, as
 follows: `<link rel='dns-prefetch' href='//gravatar.com' />`
