Problem with Fields counting involving user-defined malloc.
To allow a process in an embedded system to run until malloc fails can cause the entire system to crash.
The functions malloc and free perform dynamic memory allocation for the operating system.
However, the non-pinned memory is the memory which is allocated by using the malloc function.
The malloc field holds a pointer to a memory arena [Vo 1996] that is used to allocate memory regions from this space.
1989], and Landi and Ryder [1992] use the k-limiting approach [Jones and Muchnick 1981], and thus distinguish up to k objects created at the same malloc statement.
Typical examples of the errors detected include `Failure allocating memory using the malloc function' and `Invalid argument passed to the memory deallocation function free,' and others.
The two exceptions to this are the unpack and malloc instructions, which are discussed below.
