Based on your earlier analysis about there being at most one
overlapping page, I think a tighter assertion could be used, e.g.
something like

new_end_aligned <= (HeapWord*)align_ptr_up(_committed[ri].start() + 1, _page_size)

That would definitely deserve a comment though, and I'm not sure it
adds enough to be worthwhile.

I looked a bit further down in the file, and initially worried about
the uncommit case messing things up, but I think it shouldn't be
possible for a committed region to have zero size because the
associated covered region never has zero size.

Looks good to me.
