Unfortunately this patch broke GCC bootstrap.
cp-demangle.c isn't used just in libiberty, where using hashtab,
xcalloc, XNEW etc. is fine, but also in libsupc++/libstdc++, where
none of that is fine.  That is why cp-demangle.c only uses e.g. realloc,
checks for allocation failures and propagates those to the caller
if they happen (see allocation_failure field).  hashtab.o isn't linked
into libstdc++ nor libsupc++, and the question is if we really do want to
link all the hashtable code into libstdc++.
How many hash table entries are there typically?  Is a hashtable required?
