The following dynamic module takes unbounded memory:

/* gcc -I . -g -ggdb -fPIC foo.c -shared -o foo.so && echo running && emacs -Q -L . -batch -l foo */
#include <emacs-module.h>

int plugin_is_GPL_compatible;

int emacs_module_init(struct emacs_runtime *ert) {
  emacs_env *env = ert->get_environment(ert);
  while (1) {
    int i;
    for (i = 0; i < 10000; i++) {
      emacs_value v = env->make_string(env, "asdads", 3);
      env->free_global_ref(env, env->make_global_ref(env, v));
    }
    env->funcall(env, env->intern(env, "garbage-collect"), 0, NULL);
  }
}


This is because env->make_global_ref/env->free_global_ref leak memory.
env->free_global_ref fails to remove values from the hash table of
refcounts. The following patch makes the program above run in constant
space.

Good catch, installed as 22af69906cca871fdb893e06d6f10dbbab4518e6.
