_int_malloc(mstate av, size_t bytes)
If large enough, split off the chunk bordering the end of memory
(held in av->top). Note that this is in accord with the best-fit
search rule. In effect, av->top is treated as larger (and thus
less well fitting) than any other available chunk since it can
be extended to be as large as necessary (up to system
We require that av->top always exists (i.e., has size >=
MINSIZE) after initialization, so if it would otherwise be
exhausted by current request, it is replenished. (The main
reason for ensuring it exists is that we may need MINSIZE space
to put in fenceposts in sysmalloc.)
victim = av->top;
size = chunksize(victim);
if ((unsigned long)(size) >= (unsigned long)(nb + MINSIZE)) {
remainder_size = size - nb;
remainder = chunk_at_offset(victim, nb);
av->top = remainder;
set_head(victim, nb | PREV_INUSE |
(av != &main_arena ? NON_MAIN_ARENA : 0));
[c2] set_head(remainder, remainder_size | PREV_INUSE);
