This patch adds an overview of the data structures and core algorithms of the
backtracking allocator. There is also a shorter final section which records,
in more general terms, what we have learnt in the past four months about
splitting in the presence of calls and loops. NO FUNCTIONAL CHANGE.

Attachment #9284894 - Attachment is obsolete: true
Depends on: 1782490

The final section, on splitting across loops and calls, got moved to a new
document which currently lives at bug 1758274 comment 17.
