This file was next on my list to doxygenize.  I'm discovering that it's
chock full of SGI'isms, including comments.  I am cleaning those up in those
places which I know will not break things elsewhere, change the ABI, etc.

Two examples include uglifying a template parameter, and changing __RESTRICT
to __restrict__ (and then cleaning up the appropriate macro wrappers,
which aren't used anywhere else).  The rest is minor indentation and spacing.
(Don't ask me what that huge __us_rsthread_malloc block at the top is for.)

The std::simple_alloc and std::debug_alloc types aren't used anywhere
but in this file and pthread_allocimpl.h to provide nested typedefs.
Also in backward/alloc.h.

They aren't uglified.  Should they be?  Correctness says yes,
backwards-compatability and usefulness say no.


If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater
than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace.  We seek
not your counsel, nor your arms.  Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you;
and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.            - Samuel Adams
