Starting with <http://trac.webkit.org/changeset/35691> (last week),
fastMalloc() aborts on failed allocations, so I guess that this is
what the policy is. In a few cases where the caller knows how to
exception), a version of fastMalloc() that doesn't crash is called.
Talking about ports that cannot use fastMalloc go, some work towards
making it possible to use custom allocators is tracked by <https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=20422
