Thanks for updating the patch! Here are another review comments.

+    ereport(elevel,
+            (errmsg("skipped %d frozen pages acoording to visibility map",
+                    vacrelstats->vmskipped_frozen_pages)));

Typo: acoording should be according.

When vmskipped_frozen_pages is 1, "1 frozen pages" in log message
sounds incorrect in terms of grammar. So probably errmsg_plural()
should be used here.

+            relallvisible = visibilitymap_count(rel,
+            relallfrozen = visibilitymap_count(rel, VISIBILITYMAP_ALL_FROZEN);

We can refactor visibilitymap_count() so that it counts the numbers of
both all-visible and all-frozen tuples at the same time, in order to
avoid reading through visibility map twice.

heap_page_is_all_visible() can set all_frozen to TRUE even when
it returns FALSE. This is odd because the page must not be all frozen
when it's not all visible. heap_page_is_all_visible() should set
all_frozen to FALSE whenever all_visible is set to FALSE?
Probably it's better to forcibly set all_frozen to FALSE at the end of
the function whenever all_visible is FALSE.

+    if (PageIsAllVisible(page))
-        Assert(BufferIsValid(*vmbuffer));

Why did you remove this assertion?

+        if (all_frozen)
+        {
+            PageSetAllFrozen(page);
+            flags |= VISIBILITYMAP_ALL_FROZEN;
+        }

Why didn't you call visibilitymap_test() for all frozen case here?

In visibilitymap_set(), the argument flag must be either
VISIBILITYMAP_ALL_VISIBLE. So I think that it's better to add
Assert() which checks whether the specified flag is valid or not.

+                     * caller is expected to set PD_ALL_VISIBLE or
+                     * PD_ALL_FROZEN first.
+                     */
+                    Assert(PageIsAllVisible(heapPage) ||

This should be the following?

  Assert(((flag | VISIBILITYMAP_ALL_VISIBLE) && PageIsAllVisible(heapPage)) ||
              ((flag | VISIBILITYMAP_ALL_FROZEN) && PageIsAllFrozen(heapPage)));
