Thanks for taking a look at this. No, I don't think this will lead to 
double counting. This calculation is already there, it is just buggy. 
Before this patch the code added the total amount of promoted memory 
this collection with the average size of the pretenured objects, and 
used this as a sample. Now the code adds the total amount of promoted 
memory with the total size of the pretenured objects since last 
collection, and uses this as a sample instead.
