windows: use Go-managed pointer list for ProcThreadAttributeList It turns out that if you write Go pointers to Go memory, the Go compiler must be involved so that it generates various calls to the GC in the process. Letting Windows write Go pointers to Go memory violated this. We fix this by having all the Windows-managed memory be just a boring byte blob. Then, in order to prevent the GC from prematurely cleaning up the pointers referenced by that byte blob, or in the future moving memory and attempting to fix up pointers, we copy the data to the Windows heap and then maintain a little array of pointers that have been used. Every time the Update function is called with a new pointer, we make a copy and append it to the list. Then, on Delete, we free the pointers from the Windows heap. Updates golang/go#44900.
