No, I don't think we could assume that FGGC will come soon, and in adaptive
mode, after we triggered SSR agressively, FG_GC will be much less.

For your case, we need to clear victim_secmap.

I guess this scenario is the case our previous scheme tries to prevent, since if
in selected section, all block there are cached and set dirty, BGGC will end up
with doing nothing, it's inefficient.
