void explain_realloc_or_die(void *ptr, size_t size);

This function is intended to be used in a fashion similar to the following example:
void *new_ptr = explain_realloc_or_die(ptr, size);
The ptr, exactly as to be passed to the realloc(3) system call.
The size, exactly as to be passed to the realloc(3) system call.
