A more general solution would be to have a new MemoryContext
implementation that does the same your patch does. Ie. instead of
tracking each allocation, just allocate a big chunk, and have palloc()
return the next n free bytes from it, like a stack. pfree() would
obviously not work, but wholesale MemoryContextDelete of the whole
memory context would.
I remember I actually tried this years ago, trying to reduce the
overhead of parsing IIRC. The parser also does a lot of small
allocations that are not individually pfree'd. And I think it helped a
tiny bit, but I didn't pursue it further. But if there's many places
where it would help, then it might well be worth it.
