It doesn't. Handling C++'s new expression (not statement) is up to the
compiler frontend. Clang handles it by emitting a call to the
runtime-provided operator new function (which is probably implemented in
terms of malloc) followed by a constructor call, if applicable.

What do you mean by resolve?
