Update the “Kernel Heap” post to use new allocator API #367

This PR rewrites the “Kernel Heap” post to the new global allocator API. It also moves the bump allocator inside the main crate (instead of being a separate crate in the libs/ folder). Instead of using a spinlock for the global bump allocator, we use AtomicUsize to get a lock-free global allocator (of course, the updated post explains how it works).

I also updated the git tags for the various posts (e.g. post_8 for “Kernel Heap”), so that they all build again.

Fixes #341
