OK, now that I've caught up with linux-kernel...the code in question, it
seems, is from /usr/sys/sys/malloc.c in V7 Unix:

V7, of course, was made available by a company called Caldera a few years
ago.

I do believe I'm going to send my buddy Blake a message and see what he has
to say about this one...
