Yeah maybe.
I chose 'dummy' because it relates closely to the fill_with_dummy_object() right above. And I put 'words' there to avoid the usual confusion 'is it bytes, or is it words?'

Cool, thanks for reviewing! I'll post an updated webrev with min_filler_object_size() changed when I'm back from doctor appt, unless we agree on something better in the meantime.
Can you do me a favour and test this on a 32bits build? I suspect that the alignment stuff is entirely different there...
