[vorbis-dev] memory allocations in codec

I was wondering why the decoder does so much malloc/alloca/free
within the inner decoding stages. Allocating everything at
the xxx_look() stages would:

- ensure that on exit of the look stage the decoder as grabbed
  once and for all the resources required to decode the stream
  to the end.

- allows to perform checks on memory allocations, something
  which is completely lacking at the moment.

- be more efficient.
