It uses the kernel api for its memory pools, beside that there
is no kernel requirements. It needs cyg_mempool_* api funs,
which are defined in services/memalloc/common/current/src/kapi.cxx .
It shouldn't be too difficult to make this part of api available
also for non kernel configurations (never done that, so I could be
missing something).
