dllud found out in https://source.android.com/devices/tech/debug/scudo that the default memory alocator could be configured somehow ("Starting in the Android 11 release, scudo is used for all native code (except on low-memory devices, where jemalloc is still used).").

So it might be interesting to see which one is the best for our uses cases, especially because we might have some low-memory devices but also want to bring in security that don't have impact on practical users freedoms.
