Heap allocation in the RTS

allocateMightFail does the heap check for you and returns NULL. For the current
capability you can use MyCapability() in Cmm and pass the value to the RTS
function you're implementing.

For the new design, it seems much cleaner to allocate stable names in lookupStableName (in rts/StableName.c) rather than in the C-- code that calls it. But I haven't seen RTS code that does heap allocation. Is it possible? If so, how do I do it?
