A new memory allocator

DragonFly has a new memory allocator, called (not surprisingly) “dmalloc“.  It’s only present on x86_64, not i386, because it could eat up more VSZ (virtual memory) than an i386 kernel may  have available.

    The name is very good and not confusing: /usr/ports/devel/dmalloc. Dumbass malloc? :-)
