runtime: better approximate total cost of scavenging Currently, the scavenger is paced according to how long it takes to scavenge one runtime page's worth of memory. However, this pacing doesn't take into account the additional cost of actually using a scavenged page. This operation, "sysUsed," is a counterpart to the scavenging operation "sysUnused." On most systems this operation is a no-op, but on some systems like Darwin and Windows we actually make a syscall. Even on systems where it's a no-op, the cost is implicit: a more expensive page fault when re-using the page. On Darwin in particular the cost of "sysUnused" is fairly close to the cost of "sysUsed", which skews the pacing to be too fast. A lot of soon-to-be-allocated memory ends up scavenged, resulting in many more expensive "sysUsed" operations, ultimately slowing down the application. The way to fix this problem is to include the future cost of "sysUsed" on a page in the scavenging cost. However, measuring the "sysUsed" cost directly (like we do with "sysUnused") on most systems is infeasible because we would have to measure the cost of the first access. Instead, this change applies a multiplicative constant to the measured scavenging time which is based on a per-system ratio of "sysUnused" to "sysUsed" costs in the worst case (on systems where it's a no-op, we measure the cost of the first access). This ultimately slows down the scavenger to a more reasonable pace, limiting its impact on performance but still retaining the memory footprint improvements from the previous release. Fixes #36507.
