The room was sufficient for the final dump even with preloading
x-win.elc.  Another dump to create bootstrap-emacs needed some extra
room but that could be avoided by not preloading x-win.el at this

I think they are quite different in allocation of code.  The former
allocates it as (mostly) cons cells, but the latter does it as byte
codes in the pure storage.  This difference would also affect the
sizes/numbers of spaces that have been requested to the system.
