/*
 * Allocation policies are used to implement the standard allocation behaviors
 * in a customizable way.  Additionally, custom behaviors may be added to these
 * behaviors, such as additionally reporting an error through an out-of-band
 * mechanism when OOM occurs.  The concept modeled here is as follows:
 *
 *  - public copy constructor, assignment, destructor
 *  - template <typename T> T* maybe_pod_malloc(size_t)
 *      Fallible, but doesn't report an error on OOM.
 *  - template <typename T> T* maybe_pod_calloc(size_t)
 *      Fallible, but doesn't report an error on OOM.
 *  - template <typename T> T* maybe_pod_realloc(T*, size_t, size_t)
 *      Fallible, but doesn't report an error on OOM.  The old allocation
 *      size is passed in, in addition to the new allocation size requested.
 *  - template <typename T> T* pod_malloc(size_t)
 *      Responsible for OOM reporting when null is returned.
 *  - template <typename T> T* pod_calloc(size_t)
 *      Responsible for OOM reporting when null is returned.
 *  - template <typename T> T* pod_realloc(T*, size_t, size_t)
 *      Responsible for OOM reporting when null is returned.  The old allocation
 *      size is passed in, in addition to the new allocation size requested.
 *  - template <typename T> void free_(T*, size_t)
 *      The capacity passed in must match the old allocation size.
 *  - template <typename T> void free_(T*)
 *      Frees a buffer without knowing its allocated size. This might not be
 *      implemented by allocation policies that need the allocation size.
 *  - void reportAllocOverflow() const
 *      Called on allocation overflow (that is, an allocation implicitly tried
 *      to allocate more than the available memory space -- think allocating an
 *      array of large-size objects, where N * size overflows) before null is
 *      returned.
 *  - bool checkSimulatedOOM() const
 *      Some clients generally allocate memory yet in some circumstances won't
 *      need to do so. For example, appending to a vector with a small amount of
 *      inline storage generally allocates memory, but no allocation occurs
 *      unless appending exceeds inline storage. But for testing purposes, it
 *      can be useful to treat *every* operation as allocating.
 *      Clients (such as this hypothetical append method implementation) should
 *      call this method in situations that don't allocate, but could generally,
 *      to support this. The default behavior should return true; more
 *      complicated behavior might be to return false only after a certain
 *      number of allocations-or-check-simulated-OOMs (coordinating with the
 *      other AllocPolicy methods) have occurred.
 *
 * mfbt provides (and typically uses by default) only MallocAllocPolicy, which
 * does nothing more than delegate to the malloc/alloc/free functions.
