I don't understand how it could have been occupied when the above
message was shown, because of this condition:

      if (VirtualQuery (*var + memInfo.RegionSize, &m2, sizeof(m2)) == 0)
        DebPrint (("mmap_realloc: VirtualQuery error = %ld\n",
                   GetLastError ()));
      /* If there is enough room in the current reserved area, then
         commit more pages as needed.  */
      if (m2.State == MEM_RESERVE    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
          && nbytes <= memInfo.RegionSize + m2.RegionSize)
        {

This 'if' says that the region starting at 0x1f0000+0x10000 is in the
"reserved" state, i.e. it cannot be used by any process, including the
Emacs process (Emacs can only start using it after committing the
region, which is exactly what the failed call to VirtualAlloc tried to
do).  Am I missing something?

It's good to know the patch improves things.  I will push it, and I
will also add more debugging printouts to help us understand better
what is going on here.

Thanks.
