That's not the point. The point is the program is doing 
unnecessary non-trivial work while introducing additional failure 
paths. It certainly has ways to go to reach Ali's AA solution, 
but still...

To put things in perspective, the algorithm can easily complete 
before malloc even returns (heck, before it even starts 
executing). There's what, 11 cmovs at most? It would take several 
dozen instructions, a couple of loops and a few other branches 
just to find malloc when you first call it. Not to mention it 
itself making that syscall and setting up its bins...

And I'm not even talking about optimization. Just, uh,
