[refactor] Implement new API, based on jemalloc

This is a redesign of the library, as a hierarchy of core objects
implementing its various features. The idea is to create an API that is
as flexible and customizable as possible, by exposing as much as
possible of its internals, so that users can create customs versions
easily.

We also move away from memkind as a possible backend, opting instead to
vendor the jemalloc interface and implement everything ourselves on top
of that.

We expect to start building the low-level pieces using hwloc as a
backend soon, at least in terms of accessing available devices.

Building and installing a packaged release of jemalloc can be as simple as
typing the following while in the root directory of the source tree:
./configure
make
make install
If building from unpackaged developer sources, the simplest command sequence
that might work is:
./autogen.sh
make dist
make
make install
Note that documentation is not built by the default target because doing so
would create a dependency on xsltproc in packaged releases, hence the
requirement to either run 'make dist' or avoid installing docs via the various
install_* targets documented below.
## Advanced configuration
The 'configure' script supports numerous options that allow control of which
functionality is enabled, where jemalloc is installed, etc. Optionally, pass
any of the following arguments (not a definitive list) to 'configure':
* `--help`
Print a definitive list of options.
* `--prefix=<install-root-dir>`
Set the base directory in which to install. For example:
./configure --prefix=/usr/local
will cause files to be installed into /usr/local/include, /usr/local/lib,
and /usr/local/man.
* `--with-version=(<major>.<minor>.<bugfix>-<nrev>-g<gid>|VERSION)`
The VERSION file is mandatory for successful configuration, and the
following steps are taken to assure its presence:
1) If --with-version=<major>.<minor>.<bugfix>-<nrev>-g<gid> is specified,
generate VERSION using the specified value.
2) If --with-version is not specified in either form and the source
directory is inside a git repository, try to generate VERSION via 'git
describe' invocations that pattern-match release tags.
3) If VERSION is missing, generate it with a bogus version:
0.0.0-0-g0000000000000000000000000000000000000000
Note that --with-version=VERSION bypasses (1) and (2), which simplifies
VERSION configuration when embedding a jemalloc release into another
project's git repository.
* `--with-rpath=<colon-separated-rpath>`
Embed one or more library paths, so that libjemalloc can find the libraries
it is linked to. This works only on ELF-based systems.
* `--with-mangling=<map>`
Mangle public symbols specified in <map> which is a comma-separated list of
name:mangled pairs.
For example, to use ld's --wrap option as an alternative method for
overriding libc's malloc implementation, specify something like:
--with-mangling=malloc:__wrap_malloc,free:__wrap_free[...]
Note that mangling happens prior to application of the prefix specified by
--with-jemalloc-prefix, and mangled symbols are then ignored when applying
the prefix.
* `--with-jemalloc-prefix=<prefix>`
Prefix all public APIs with <prefix>. For example, if <prefix> is
"prefix_", API changes like the following occur:
malloc() --> prefix_malloc()
malloc_conf --> prefix_malloc_conf
/etc/malloc.conf --> /etc/prefix_malloc.conf
MALLOC_CONF --> PREFIX_MALLOC_CONF
This makes it possible to use jemalloc at the same time as the system
allocator, or even to use multiple copies of jemalloc simultaneously.
By default, the prefix is "", except on OS X, where it is "je_". On OS X,
jemalloc overlays the default malloc zone, but makes no attempt to actually
replace the "malloc", "calloc", etc. symbols.
* `--without-export`
Don't export public APIs. This can be useful when building jemalloc as a
static library, or to avoid exporting public APIs when using the zone
allocator on OSX.
* `--with-private-namespace=<prefix>`
Prefix all library-private APIs with <prefix>je_. For shared libraries,
symbol visibility mechanisms prevent these symbols from being exported, but
for static libraries, naming collisions are a real possibility. By
default, <prefix> is empty, which results in a symbol prefix of je_ .
* `--with-install-suffix=<suffix>`
Append <suffix> to the base name of all installed files, such that multiple
versions of jemalloc can coexist in the same installation directory. For
example, libjemalloc.so.0 becomes libjemalloc<suffix>.so.0.
* `--with-malloc-conf=<malloc_conf>`
Embed `<malloc_conf>` as a run-time options string that is processed prior to
the malloc_conf global variable, the /etc/malloc.conf symlink, and the
MALLOC_CONF environment variable. For example, to change the default decay
time to 30 seconds:
--with-malloc-conf=decay_ms:30000
* `--enable-debug`
Enable assertions and validation code. This incurs a substantial
performance hit, but is very useful during application development.
* `--disable-stats`
Disable statistics gathering functionality. See the "opt.stats_print"
option documentation for usage details.
* `--enable-prof`
Enable heap profiling and leak detection functionality. See the "opt.prof"
option documentation for usage details. When enabled, there are several
approaches to backtracing, and the configure script chooses the first one
in the following list that appears to function correctly:
+ libunwind (requires --enable-prof-libunwind)
+ libgcc (unless --disable-prof-libgcc)
+ gcc intrinsics (unless --disable-prof-gcc)
* `--enable-prof-libunwind`
Use the libunwind library (http://www.nongnu.org/libunwind/) for stack
backtracing.
* `--disable-prof-libgcc`
Disable the use of libgcc's backtracing functionality.
* `--disable-prof-gcc`
Disable the use of gcc intrinsics for backtracing.
* `--with-static-libunwind=<libunwind.a>`
Statically link against the specified libunwind.a rather than dynamically
linking with -lunwind.
* `--disable-thp`
Disable transparent huge page (THP) integration. This option can be useful
when cross compiling.
* `--disable-fill`
Disable support for junk/zero filling of memory. See the "opt.junk" and
"opt.zero" option documentation for usage details.
* `--disable-zone-allocator`
Disable zone allocator for Darwin. This means jemalloc won't be hooked as
the default allocator on OSX/iOS.
* `--enable-utrace`
Enable utrace(2)-based allocation tracing. This feature is not broadly
portable (FreeBSD has it, but Linux and OS X do not).
* `--enable-xmalloc`
Enable support for optional immediate termination due to out-of-memory
errors, as is commonly implemented by "xmalloc" wrapper function for malloc.
See the "opt.xmalloc" option documentation for usage details.
* `--enable-lazy-lock`
Enable code that wraps pthread_create() to detect when an application
switches from single-threaded to multi-threaded mode, so that it can avoid
mutex locking/unlocking operations while in single-threaded mode. In
practice, this feature usually has little impact on performance unless
thread-specific caching is disabled.
* `--disable-cache-oblivious`
Disable cache-oblivious large allocation alignment for large allocation
requests with no alignment constraints. If this feature is disabled, all
large allocations are page-aligned as an implementation artifact, which can
severely harm CPU cache utilization. However, the cache-oblivious layout
comes at the cost of one extra page per large allocation, which in the
most extreme case increases physical memory usage for the 16 KiB size class
to 20 KiB.
* `--disable-syscall`
Disable use of syscall(2) rather than {open,read,write,close}(2). This is
intended as a workaround for systems that place security limitations on
syscall(2).
* `--disable-cxx`
Disable C++ integration. This will cause new and delete operator
implementations to be omitted.
* `--with-xslroot=<path>`
Specify where to find DocBook XSL stylesheets when building the
documentation.
* `--with-lg-page=<lg-page>`
Specify the base 2 log of the allocator page size, which must in turn be at
least as large as the system page size. By default the configure script
determines the host's page size and sets the allocator page size equal to
the system page size, so this option need not be specified unless the
system page size may change between configuration and execution, e.g. when
cross compiling.
* `--with-lg-page-sizes=<lg-page-sizes>`
Specify the comma-separated base 2 logs of the page sizes to support. This
option may be useful when cross compiling in combination with
`--with-lg-page`, but its primary use case is for integration with FreeBSD's
libc, wherein jemalloc is embedded.
* `--with-lg-hugepage=<lg-hugepage>`
Specify the base 2 log of the system huge page size. This option is useful
when cross compiling, or when overriding the default for systems that do
not explicitly support huge pages.
* `--with-lg-quantum=<lg-quantum>`
Specify the base 2 log of the minimum allocation alignment. jemalloc needs
to know the minimum alignment that meets the following C standard
requirement (quoted from the April 12, 2011 draft of the C11 standard):
> The pointer returned if the allocation succeeds is suitably aligned so
that it may be assigned to a pointer to any type of object with a
fundamental alignment requirement and then used to access such an object
or an array of such objects in the space allocated [...]
This setting is architecture-specific, and although jemalloc includes known
safe values for the most commonly used modern architectures, there is a
wrinkle related to GNU libc (glibc) that may impact your choice of
<lg-quantum>. On most modern architectures, this mandates 16-byte
alignment (<lg-quantum>=4), but the glibc developers chose not to meet this
requirement for performance reasons. An old discussion can be found at
<https://sourceware.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=206> . Unlike glibc,
jemalloc does follow the C standard by default (caveat: jemalloc
technically cheats for size classes smaller than the quantum), but the fact
that Linux systems already work around this allocator noncompliance means
that it is generally safe in practice to let jemalloc's minimum alignment
follow glibc's lead. If you specify `--with-lg-quantum=3` during
configuration, jemalloc will provide additional size classes that are not
16-byte-aligned (24, 40, and 56).
The following environment variables (not a definitive list) impact configure's
behavior:
*
