// This file defines arena allocators.
// Almost all large objects, such as files, sections or symbols, are
// used for the entire lifetime of the linker once they are created.
// This usage characteristic makes arena allocator an attractive choice
// where the entire linker is one arena. With an arena, newly created
// objects belong to the arena and freed all at once when everything is done.
// Arena allocators are efficient and easy to understand.
// Most objects are allocated using the arena allocators defined by this file.
