> drop_all just returns buffers to free list, it will not destruct the buffers. So, iterate multiple times is OK, because next time it will get memory from free list or allocate a new buffer. Hope this answer your question.
Since `drop_all()` resets all counters (e.g. `_num_allocated_nodes`), the subsequent iteration will think the array is empty, won't it?
