Hi Eric, Morrita & All,
Thanks for answering.
I understand like FastMalloc is derived from google's perf-tool TCMalloc to
avoid one more dependency. Unused codes were kept inside WTF_CHANGES to
ease the merging of new versions of TCMalloc.
But why don't we enable the statistics(allocated objects,committed virtual
memory from OS) here? Similar to *about:tcmalloc in google chrome.* Hope
this will help to identify the leaks & memory growth of webkit.
