I'll let Mina comment, but I think I know what happened.

The original version of the test did indeed use 10MB. However, the mremap
code must 'unshare' and shared pmd mappings before remapping. Since sharing
requires mappings of at least 1GB, the size was changed to make sure unsharing

In the end, I believe I suggested adding hugepage-mremap to
The script does not try to configure a GB worth of huge pages. And, I think
it is somewhat unreasonable to suggest users gave a spare GB to run the test.

I'm OK with restoring the original value.
