// Blocks of space for metadata are allocated out of Metachunks.
// Metachunk are allocated out of MetadataVirtualspaces and once
// allocated there is no explicit link between a Metachunk and
// the MetadataVirtualspaces from which it was allocated.
// Each SpaceManager maintains a
// list of the chunks it is using and the current chunk.  The current
// chunk is the chunk from which allocations are done.  Space freed in
// a chunk is placed on the free list of blocks (BlockFreelist) and
// reused from there.
// Future modification
// The Metachunk can conceivable be replaced by the Chunk in
// allocation.hpp.  Note that the latter Chunk is the space for
// allocation (allocations from the chunk are out of the space in
// the Chunk after the header for the Chunk) where as Metachunks
// point to space in a VirtualSpace.  To replace Metachunks with
// Chunks, change Chunks so that they can be allocated out of a VirtualSpace.
