How much and complicated malloc do you need?

It might be time to drag in a complete malloc implementation to the pluginlib
so that all the plugins that want it could use it. It would probably make
sense compared to the current situation with a large amount of half-baked
implementations spread out all over...

I may be a bit biased here, but one alternative for use is dbestfit:

  http://sourceforge.net/projects/dbestfit/

(I'm not proposing malloc for the kernel or core Rockbox, only for plugins
that in fact already do this but in a less "controlled" manner.)
