Marginal performance hack: remove the loop that used to be needed to
look through a freelist for a chunk of adequate size. For a long time
now, all elements of a given freelist have been exactly the same
allocated size, so we don't need a loop. Since the loop never iterated
more than once, you'd think this wouldn't matter much, but it makes a
noticeable savings in a simple test --- perhaps because the compiler
isn't optimizing on a mistaken assumption that the loop would repeat.
AllocSetAlloc is called often enough that saving even a couple of
instructions is worthwhile.
