What's the goal of this patch? JavaScriptCore already supports malloc/free and

I disagree with the approach here.

1. There's a layering problem. An "abstract" memory allocator should be
agnostic about the kinds of allocations its clients will make. But this
allocator has functions like allocateJSBlock and reserveJSRegisterFile, tying
it to its clients. This seems like a confused and unscalable design.

2. You haven't ported any existing platforms to the abstract interface, so
you've just added yet another way to allocate memory, complicating the design.
