    malloc: Remove malloc_get_state, malloc_set_state [BZ #19473]

    After the removal of __malloc_initialize_hook, newly compiled
    Emacs binaries are no longer able to use these interfaces.
    malloc_get_state is only used during the Emacs build process,
    so we provide a stub implementation only.  Existing Emacs binaries
    will not call this stub function, but still reference the symbol.

    The rewritten tst-mallocstate test constructs a dumped heap
    which should approximates what existing Emacs binaries pass
    to glibc malloc.
