> "allocateArray" in [ShuffleInMemorySorter.reset|]
may trigger a spill and cause ShuffleInMemorySorter access the released `array`. Another task
may get the same memory page from the pool. This will cause two tasks access the same memory
page. When a task reads memory written by another task, many types of failures may happen.
Here are some examples I  have seen:
> - JVM crash. (This is easy to reproduce in a unit test as we fill newly allocated and
deallocated memory with 0xa5 and 0x5a bytes which usually points to an invalid memory address)
> - java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Comparison method violates its general contract!
> - java.lang.NullPointerException at org.apache.spark.memory.TaskMemoryManager.getPage(
> - java.lang.UnsupportedOperationException: Cannot grow BufferHolder by size -536870912
because the size after growing exceeds size limitation 2147483632
