Use of the malloc/free/realloc/calloc/valloc/memalign/posix_memalign

+Please note that g_malloc will exit on allocation failure, so there

+Calling g_malloc with a zero size is valid and will return NULL.
Memory allocated by qemu_vmalloc or qemu_memalign must be freed with
qemu_vfree, since breaking this will cause problems on Win32 and user
