If its not a dynamically sized object, you might put it on the stack.

Alternatively, look at the "fixed" allocation type (GC_ALLOC_FIXED).
Probably the right thing to do is use a new GC type like
GC_ALLOC_JITTEMP did (see gcFuncs.c:initCollector).  Fixed types are
manually managed, but are separated for statistical reasons.
