I'll let Paul explain what he was worried about.  What I was worried
about is that memory allocation done by emacs-module.c on behalf of
modules doesn't behave like xmalloc does, doesn't comply to the
MALLOC_BLOCK_INPUT protocol, and cannot be probed by MALLOC_PROBE.  I
think this should be easy to fix.
