[webkit-dev] Let's get bmalloc working on Linux (and delete TCMalloc)

Hello Geoffrey,

EFL and GTK folks agreed that GTK port enables bmalloc first, then EFL port
will enable it after the bmalloc begins to support memory stats. Until
then, GTK port wants to refer to memory stats on EFL port one in the
meanwhile. However, as you commented on Bug 141247 Comment #2, if it is
hard to support memory stats on bmalloc at the moment, I agree to remove
TCMalloc first.

To help to go ahead, I upload a patch to enable bmalloc on EFL port as well
as to remove TCMaclloc in CMake.

Bug 141459 - [EFL] Enable bmalloc for EFL port.
