Improve realloc on fixed buffer allocator #1238

I was looking through the code and figured this would be useful.

The FixedBufferAllocator now checks if the memory buffer you pass into realloc is at the end of the used memory and just extends it instead of always allocating a new block.

It would be great if we could get comptime code execution to support this with no modifications to your implementation. Maybe at comptime we could model pointers like this as opaque values but that are comparable, or something like that.

Now that I'm thinking about it, I think I could get it to work in a reasonable way without too much code reworking.
