* The memory pool allows one to allocate memory from a fixed size buffer
* that also allows freeing semantics for reuse. However, the current
* limitation is that the most recent allocation is the only one that
* can be freed. If one tries to free any allocation that isn't the
* most recently allocated it will result in a leak within the memory pool.
* The memory returned by allocations are at least 8 byte aligned. Note
* that this requires the backing buffer to start on at least an 8 byte
* alignment.
