Switch system allocator

Description (last modified by )
We presently use an old version of the Hoard allocator, which is licensed under the LGPLv2. Newer versions are GPL or commercial license only, which is obviously not acceptable.
Benchmarks done by the Lockless group also show that the Hoard allocator has a very worrying performance dropoff for larger allocations, see https://locklessinc.com/benchmarks_allocator.shtml
