  Add USE_BRK-specific code in malloc_init_hard() to allow the first
  internally used chunk to start at the beginning of the heap, rather
  than at a chunk-aligned address.  This reduces mapped memory somewhat
  for 32-bit architectures.
  Add the arena_run_link_t type and use it wherever a run object is only
  used as a ring 'header'.  This saves approximately 40 kB of memory per
  Remove an obsolete (no longer used) code path from base_alloc(), which
  supported the internal allocation of objects larger than the chunk
  Enhance chunk_dealloc() to cache chunk addresses for all deallocated
  chunks.  This has no impact for most programs, but has the potential
  to reduce VM map fragmentation for programs that use huge
