Having it's own heap is normal for all stdlib-implementations I've seen.

kernlib is private to the kernel. Do you mean to have malloc() and
friends call the OS for each call? That sounds like a lot of overhead to
me. Also, it would most likely cause much more memory fragmentation,
which is something we really don't need.
