Thanks for the patch. I am not sure about the proper place of this change,
but changing it with transtype will make all float4 and float8 aggregates to
work in parallel. Most of these aggregates return type is typbyval and
transition type is a variable length.

we may need to write better combine functions for these types to avoid wrong
results because of parallel.
