fix rare but nasty under-allocation bug in malloc with large requests
the bug appeared only with requests roughly 2*sizeof(size_t) to 4*sizeof(size_t) bytes smaller than a multiple of the page size, and only for requests large enough to be serviced by mmap instead of the normal heap. it was only ever observed on 64-bit machines but presumably could also affect 32-bit (albeit with a smaller window of opportunity).
