    malloc: Avoid premature fallback to mmap [BZ #20284]

    Before this change, the while loop in reused_arena which avoids
    returning a corrupt arena would never execute its body if the selected
    arena were not corrupt.  As a result, result == begin after the loop,
    and the function returns NULL, triggering fallback to mmap.

    (cherry picked from commit a3b473373ee43a292f5ec68a7fda6b9cfb26a9b0)
