Description:
drop_page may leave stack bottom entry not HOT
which is against the rules.  it causes later crash
in lirs_stack_pop:

#ifdef VM_TRACE
  debugOut << "PGMAN: " << ptr << ": pop from stack" << endl;
#endif
    
  ndbrequire(state & Page_entry::HOT);

How to repeat:
drop tables
(not very likely to occur)

Suggested fix:
prune the stack
