tracemalloc cannot be used in object destructors because the module is stopped early at Python shutdown.

I would like to use tracemalloc.get_object_traceback() in object destructors to retrieve where an object was allocated.

Attached patch replaces the atexit handler with a builtin _PyTraceMalloc_Fini() function to stop tracemalloc much later. It does also simplify the C code of _tracemalloc.c.

Oh tracemalloc_fini.patch is not correct, _PyTraceMalloc_Fini() should be called after PyImport_Cleanup().
