Also what about other implementations like memset or memcmp. Have
they been implemented or require work from scratch?

I'd say there is only 1 requirement: implementing `malloc`,

But, how does it perform? In order to make the case for using
these D implementations in druntime, we'll have to gather some
metrics on the implementations in terms of performance, memory
fragmentation, etc. and ensure they are on par with the C
standard library implementations or alternative implementations
like jemalloc and tcmalloc?
So the only option to implement the above is to go through
Eugene's code, take some measurements and see if it can be
Perhaps the D implementations can be enhanced to provide
compile-time or runtime tuning parameters to achieve better
performance in different use cases.
That's totally okay. Your every comment is making the idea more
