> The MemoryManager class has "initial size" parameter and it's usage is misleading.
> Once set this parameter works as default arena size for all arenas allocated by this
memory manager.
> I did a code review and see that in 90% of cases this parameter is not used correctly
and default value is used (4k per arena).
> The problem is that sometimes the initial size is set to very large values for a global
memory managers (like 128*method size  which is about  5Mb for a large methods ). Once this
parameter is set, every new arena in memory manager will have the same size, making JIT to
ask a large memory chunks from OS when it's not needed and causing a problems in environments
with high memory pressure.
> I propose removing this parameter at all.
