// 1) If an object is freed and its vtable used where the attacker doesn't
// get the chance to run allocations between the free and use, the vtable
// dereference is likely to fault.
// 2) If the attacker has a linear buffer overflow and elects to try and
// corrupt a freelist pointer, partial pointer overwrite attacks are
// thwarted.
// For big endian, similar guarantees are arrived at with a negation.
