can I have reviews for this removal of an internal VM test that is
susceptible to races with the application? It uses some global data
structures (the PRT free list), and depending on the activity of the
application, the guarantee in there may fail.
As fix I removed the test completely. There is no way this issue can be
fixed with a reasonable effort, and that part of the remset code is
planned to be removed anyway.
