In which way does it not handle it? Over-allocation is supposed to be
handled by the "ctx->restore.tot_pages + sp->count >
ctx->restore.max_pages" checks. Do you mean the second 1G is allocated,
then max_pages is reached, and allocation in other areas is not possible
Can this actually happen with the available senders? If not, this is
again the missing memory map.
