Jari Operating System: LibAlloc updates

Some of today's deal within Jari OS project was dlmalloc (Douglas Lee memory allocator) porting.
So, it's done and now I've rejected using of ugly smalloc (simple memory allocator).
Dlmalloc is a great thing - it can be ported anywhere, for example - Jari OS doesn't have sbrk() function, and will not have this oldish shit, otherwise - all is done via mmap() and dlmalloc allow to use it without sbrk().
Porting to the Jari OS mmap() semantics taken few minutes only.
Like usually you can look out source code - git clone git:// - LibAlloc/lib/dlmalloc.c
