First of all limit the memory range used for testing to 4Mb: There's no
point placing page tables right above 8Mb when they can equally well
live at the bottom of the chunk at 4Mb - rep_io_test() cares about the
5Mb...7Mb range only anyway. In a subsequent patch this will then also
allow simply looking for an unused 4Mb range (instead of using a build
time determined one).

Extend the "skip tests" condition beyond the "is there enough memory"

As already identified, I'm not convinced that these tests should stay,
but for older releases, they shouldn't exhibit this failure mode.
