    libc - Do some reorganization of nmalloc() and add asserts.
    * Reorganize mtmagazine_alloc() and mtmagazine_free() to make the code
      more clear.  Add assertions on 'continue' loops so we abort on
      magazine memory corruption instead of looping forever.
    * Pre-stage the new magazine that mtmagazine_free() might need to avoid
      having to relock the depot.  This also allows us to stage the new
      magazine directory into the per-thread loaded field instead of running
      it through the depot.
    * Fix a deep or infinite recursion which can occur when mtmagazine_free()
      calls _slaballoc(), which it does sometimes when it needs a new
      magazine.  Avoid reentrancy by temporarily disabling the per-thread
      cache around the call.
