/* Order size using quicksort. This implementation incorporates
four optimizations discussed in Sedgewick:
1. Non-recursive, using an explicit stack of pointer that store the
next array partition to sort. To save time, this maximum amount
of space required to store an array of SIZE_MAX is allocated on the
stack. Assuming a 32-bit (64 bit) integer for size_t, this needs
only 32 * sizeof(stack_node) == 256 bytes (for 64 bit: 1024 bytes).
Pretty cheap, actually.
2. Chose the pivot element using a median-of-three decision tree.
This reduces the probability of selecting a bad pivot value and
eliminates certain extraneous comparisons.
3. Only quicksorts TOTAL_ELEMS / MAX_THRESH partitions, leaving
insertion sort to order the MAX_THRESH items within each partition.
This is a big win, since insertion sort is faster for small, mostly
sorted array segments.
4. The larger of the two sub-partitions is always pushed onto the
stack first, with the algorithm then concentrating on the
smaller partition. This *guarantees* no more than log (total_elems)
stack size is needed (actually O(1) in this case)! */
