Add tracing around initializing and discarding mempools. In discard report
on the amount of memory unused in the current block to help tune setting
the initial_size.

Looks good.

My only question: should we also trace calls to _alloc(), _calloc() and
_combine()?

Ciao,
Johannes

I was trying to tune the initial size in my use of the mem_pool and so 
found this tracing useful to see how much memory was actually being 
used.  I'm inclined to only add tracing as it is needed rather that 
proactively because we think it _might_ be needed.  I suspect _alloc() 
and _calloc() would get very noisy and not add much value.

In other words, YAGNI. Makes sense.
