Description Jonathan Larmour 2001-10-16 12:56:30 UTC
We need a new memory allocator that is much more efficient than the
existing variable block one. This would use the same efficient block layout
scheme as dlmalloc (to preserve space) but would be on a much smaller
scale, and more configurable (e.g. coalescing, etc.)

This could then replace the one-off allocator in redboot's decompress.c
