Hi Sergey,

Thank you for your review.

Please take a look at the updated webrev:

It makes sense to add it so that the test is skipped if there's not 
enough of memory.
However, I think the actual requirement is >= 2G as it needs 1G for Java 
heap and it needs native memory for images and for other purposes.

The test exhausts the available native memory to make malloc fail. The 
amount of used memory reaches close to 2G before it fails.
