Yes, restarts would be problematic for the time being. This means that we
either don't save the memory for now, or we save memory but don't allow
mod_status to be added in during a restart.

I hope that in the long run we will find a shared memory solution to this
problem so that we can allocate chunks of shared memory later if required.
