    Should we even include this test Pranav?  I don't see where you are proving that we do
not exceed the limit or that the limit works.  Also, where are you making the splits in this
    I'm fine committing the patch without this test -- the code as is looks fine to me.

This may happen if the values are large in size even though the number of keyvalues are not
large. If the number of regions becomes too large, then it is difficult to accommodate the
memstore for each region in memory. In such cases, we either have to flush out memstore to
disk or decrease size of each memstore.
