  Modified files:
    lib/libc/stdlib      malloc.c 
  Refactor per-run bitmap manipulation functions so that bitmap offsets only
  have to be calculated once per allocator operation.
  Make nil const.
  Update various comments.
  Remove/avoid division where possible.
  For the one division operation that remains in the critical path, add a
  switch statement that has a case for each small size class, and do division
  with a constant divisor in each case.  This allows the compiler to generate
  optimized code that does not use hardware division [1].
