[webkit-dev] WTF::fastMalloc

Hi folks.

I’m planning to remove our years-out-of-date port of TCMalloc, and replace it with something that takes maximum advantage of Mac and iOS virtual memory, threading, and security APIs.

I've heard that TCMalloc has caused some problems for non-Mac, non-iOS ports in the past. So, if you maintain a port, this change might make things simpler for you.

Are there any ports whose built-in malloc implementations are slow enough that they can’t get by without TCMalloc?
