malloc_state

This structure represents the header details of an Arena. The main thread's arena is a global variable and not part of the heap segment. Arena headers (malloc_state structures) for other threads are themselves stored in the heap segment. Non main arenas can have multiple heaps ('heap' here refers to the internal structure used instead of the heap segment) associated with them.

  mchunkptr last_remainder;
  /* Normal bins packed as described above */
  mchunkptr bins[NBINS * 2 - 2];

  /* Linked list for free arenas.  Access to this field is serialized
     by free_list_lock in arena.c.  */
