I got an interesting problem that you guys could help me with.
My software use SQLite and I use
bindgen to build the binding at run time and the
cc create to compile SQLite into an archive library that is then linked by rustc.
Now I want to change the global allocator doing something like it is show here: https://doc.rust-lang.org/std/alloc/trait.GlobalAlloc.html
It seems to work up to a point, all the rust code is indeed working with the new allocator, unfortunately, SQLite is still using its own allocator.
I know this by tracing malloc call with GDB.
It actually makes sense, the
cc crate compile SQLite before that cargo even know that I am changing the allocator.
Is there a way to force the use of the global allocator also in SQLite?
(Yes, I know that I can manually change the memory allocator of SQLite, but I would rather not.)
