Memory Manager Development

The legacy memory manager in ReactOS has many idiosyncrasies and architectural quirks, issues that have dogged the project for many years now. The ARM team began a rewrite, colorfully named Another Rewrite of the Memory Management Module (ARM3), that partially supplanted the old memory manager but a big chunk of responsibility still lie with it, namely in the form of MEMORY_AREA. Simply put, MEMORY_AREA was the means by which memory address ranges were tracked, tracking which is necessary for things like handling paging.
