Well, many users pay attention to the RSS value and don't care if the memory is physically allocated or not.

Moreover, I'm not sure that we can fix bpo-37851 in Python 3.7. In general, the policy is to minimize changes in stable Python versions. I'm not sure for Python 3.8 neither. I would suggest to only modify Python 3.9, simply to reduce the risk of regressions.
