Function std.experimental.allocator.mallocator.Mallocator.allocate

Standard allocator methods per the semantics defined above. The deallocate and reallocate methods are @system because they may move memory around, leaving dangling pointers in user code. Somewhat paradoxically, malloc is @safe but that's only useful to safe programs that can afford to leak memory allocated.

void[] allocate (
  ulong bytes
