It appears we do not look at the rephist subsystem in the OOM handler.

But, we do track memory allocation with rephist_total_alloc counter. That counter needs to be audited because I found two places where we allocate memory for stats but do not increment that global counter.

Bug #25141 could have been avoided in some ways with this or at least made obvious to the operator without tor crashing.
