BTW, now that XLogRecPtr is uint64, can't we change the pd_lsn field
to use the same type ? At least the following comment in bufpage.h
looks outdated or at the minimum needs some explanation as why LSN in
the page header needs to split into two 32-bit values.

123 /* for historical reasons, the LSN is stored as two 32-bit values. */
124 typedef struct
125 {
126     uint32      xlogid;         /* high bits */
127     uint32      xrecoff;        /* low bits */
128 } PageXLogRecPtr;
