Forcing a full garbage collection cycle will block the nginx worker
for a while because nginx is single threaded and the Lua VM is shared
within the worker process. That's also one of the reasons Java web
apps also freeze when JVM does a full GC cycle. So it only makes sense
when the system is really short of RAM resources :)
