   Cross posting to here. I think it worth to think about memory allocation strategy. Specificially,
we should design an API that contains a simple allocator(which is arena like and allocate
memory from a stack, and release everything once done), and use that allocator for all memories
in the program(including data structures and tensors). This will completely eliminate the
usage of system calls and allow the program o run in bare metal.
   
   ### Example API
   
   ```c
   // call use system call to get the memory, or directly points to memory segments in ucontroller
   UTVMAllocator* arena = UTVMCreateArena(10000);
   // Subsequent data structures are allocated from the allocator
   // The free calls will recycle data into the allocator
   // The simplest strategy is not to recycle at all
   UTVMSetAllocator(arena);
   
   // normal TVM API calls
   ```
