  /* The base address for our GNU malloc heap is chosen in conjuction
     with the link settings for temacs.exe which control the stack size,
     the initial default process heap size and the executable image base
     address.  The link settings and the malloc heap base below must all
     correspond; the relationship between these values depends on how NT
     and Win95 arrange the virtual address space for a process (and on
     the size of the code and data segments in temacs.exe).

     The most important thing is to make base address for the executable
     image high enough to leave enough room between it and the 4MB floor
     of the process address space on Win95 for the primary thread stack,
     the process default heap, and other assorted odds and ends
     (eg. environment strings, private system dll memory etc) that are
     allocated before temacs has a chance to grab its malloc arena.  The
     malloc heap base can then be set several MB higher than the
     executable image base, leaving enough room for the code and data

     Because some parts of Emacs can use rather a lot of stack space
     (for instance, the regular expression routines can potentially
     allocate several MB of stack space) we allow 8MB for the stack.

     Allowing 1MB for the default process heap, and 1MB for odds and
     ends, we can base the executable at 16MB and still have a generous
     safety margin.  At the moment, the executable has about 810KB of
     code (for x86) and about 550KB of data - on RISC platforms the code
     size could be roughly double, so if we allow 4MB for the executable
     we will have plenty of room for expansion.

     Thus we would like to set the malloc heap base to 20MB.  However,
     Win95 refuses to allocate the heap starting at this address, so we
     set the base to 27MB to make it happy.  Since Emacs now leaves
     28 bits available for pointers, this lets us use the remainder of
     the region below the 256MB line for our malloc arena - 229MB is
     still a pretty decent arena to play in!  */
