[avr-libc-dev] Comments in malloc implementation and #bug 27243

I was going through the comments in malloc.c to understand the way memory is 
assigned following a malloc request. I got a bit confused with the "largest 
chunk" part. Usually, smallest chunk of memory satisfying the malloc request is 
selected from the free list. I think going by the code implemented following 
the comments also shows that "smallest chunk" is selected.

As trivial as it may seem, I would like to know if the phrase (largest chunk) 
is a simple case of typo (or my understanding got skewed somewhere?). I found 
#bug 27243 talking the same (https://savannah.nongnu.org/bugs/?27243).
