Ok, done.

The new patch has a safer API:

* _PyTraceMalloc_Track() can be called twice with the same pointer: the old trace is removed, a new trace is added
* _PyTraceMalloc_Track() ensures that the GIL is hold
* _PyTraceMalloc_Track() & _PyTraceMalloc_Untrack() do nothing if tracemalloc is disabled

I also added unit tests.
