Description

For instance, when running erase_memory.feature with a feature/jessie-based Tails image, we end up covering less than 55% of the ram in the "old computer" scenarios, despite there still being ~1300 MiB of free (non-buffer, non-cache) memory. This is getting too low and doesn't feel reliable any more, IMHO.

I believe that's not a problem with fillram itself, but with the way it's run in the automated test suite: when I tested memory erasure manually (https://tails.boum.org/contribute/release_process/test/erase_memory_on_shutdown/), it worked perfectly. Then assigning to anonym, as part of #7563.
