Heap and Stack checks
Source files: rts/HeapStackCheck.cmm
When allocating a heap object, we bump
Hp and compare to
HpLim. If the test fails we branch to ???. Usually this code tests an interrupt flag (to see if execution should be brought tidily to a halt); grabs the next block of alloaction space; makes
Hp point to it and
HpLim to its end; and returns. If there are no more allocation-space blocks, garbage collection is triggered.
