You probably knew this but just in case the term for this strategy is
called a "ripcord allocator". I believe GCC had one, not sure if it
still uses it. I doubt any existing ones are especially helpful though
compared to looking at regular allocators and seeing how to integrate

I assume you're also aware of lock-free data structures and the like.
A memory allocator seems like something that needs to be super aware
of causing concurrency bottlenecks since it has no idea where it'll be
