To proper testing of free list sorting we need to defragment memory with 
small young and humongous objects
This is test scenario:
Make enough space for new objects to prevent it going old.
  - allocate bunch of small objects, and a bit of humongous
several times.

Free almost all of allocated stuff. Check that heap shrinks after GC.
