Description

We should investigate performance and robustness of a partitioned heap using jemalloc4. Some links to get started:

http://ggp.name/2014/10/15/Partitioned-heap-in-Firefox-pt1.html
http://ggp.name/2015/03/03/Partitioned-heap-in-Firefox-pt2.html

And tjr's summary:

One thing worth considering is whether it should be random partitions or not.

Thanks for the bug link. That's worth thinking about, yes. But this bug can get closed as jemalloc4 won't come.
