The RIOT community cares a lot about code quality.
Therefore, before describing what your contribution is about, we would like
you to make sure that your modifications are compliant with the RIOT
coding conventions, see https://github.com/RIOT-OS/RIOT/wiki/Coding-conventions.

### Contribution description

The malloc.h file is deprecated on most systems and should not be
used, instead include stdlib.h which handles needed function in a
portable manner.

This fix is needed to run unittests with RIOT native on FreeBSD
(and some others platforms).

### Testing procedure

compile and run unit tests, they should still work.
