// At this point a large number of Arenas will have died (see above), but we probably still have

// These chunks are all committed still, since we did nothing to reclaim the storage. We now purge
// the context manually to uncommit those chunks, in order to get a realistic number for
// committed words (see checkStatistics()).
// Note: In real metaspace, this happens as part of the same GC which removes class loaders and
// frees their metaspace arenas. All within CLDG::purge(). But since this test isolates the metaspace
// context and does test it separately, GC and CLDG are not involved here. We need to purge manually.
// Purging uncommits all free chunks >= 64K/16K (MetaspaceReclaimPolicy=standard/aggressive).
