  Untangle jemalloc and mutexes initialization.

  The need to use libc malloc(3) from some places in libthr always
  caused issues.  For instance, per-thread key allocation was switched to
  use plain mmap(2) to get storage, because some third party mallocs
  used keys for implementation of calloc(3).

  Even more important, libthr calls calloc(3) during initialization of
  pthread mutexes, and jemalloc uses pthread mutexes.  Jemalloc provides
  some way to both postpone the initialization, and to make
  initialization to use specialized allocator, but this is very fragile
  and often breaks.  See the referenced PR for another example.

  Add the small malloc implementation used by rtld, to libthr. Use it in
  thr_spec.c and for mutexes initialization. This avoids the issues with
  mutual dependencies between malloc and libthr in principle.  The
  drawback is that some more allocations are not interceptable for
  alternate malloc implementations.  There should be not too much memory
  use from this allocator, and the alternative, direct use of mmap(2) is
  obviously worse.
