I commited my new API to customize memory allocators:

New changeset 6661a8154eb3 by Victor Stinner in branch 'default':
Issue #3329: Add new APIs to customize memory allocators

I added PyMem_RawMalloc(), PyMem_RawRealloc() and PyMem_RawFree() in the same commit. These functions are wrappers to malloc/realloc/free which can be called without the GIL held. Using these new functions instead of malloc/realloc/free is interesting because the internal functions can be replaced with PyMem_SetRawAllocators() and many checks are added in debug mode (ex: check for buffer under- and overflow).
