> 68b2a43d8653 introduced memory leak.

I was very surprised to see a regression in test_format since I didn't change any change related to bytes, bytearray or str formatting in this issue.

In fact, it's much better than that! With PyMem_Malloc() using pymalloc, we benefit for free of the cheap "_Py_AllocatedBlocks" memory leak detector. I introduced the memory leak in the issue #25349 when I optimimzed bytes%args and bytearray%args using the new _PyBytesWriter API.

This memory leak gave me an idea, I opened the issue #26850: "PyMem_RawMalloc(): update also sys.getallocatedblocks() in debug mode".
