I have pushed 000 and part of 003, with substantial revisions to the
003 part and minor revisions to the 000 part.  This gets the basic
infrastructure in place, but the vacuum optimization and pg_upgrade
fixes still need to be done.

I discovered that make check-world failed with 000 applied, because
the Assert()s added to visibilitymap_set were using | rather than & to
test for a set bit.  I fixed that.

I revised the code in vacuumlazy.c that updates the new map bits
rather heavily.  I hope I didn't break anything; please have a look
and see if you spot any problems.  One big problem was that it's
inadequate to judge whether a tuple needs freezing just by looking at
xmin; xmax might need to be cleared, for example.

I removed the pgstat stuff.  I'm not sure we want that stuff in that
form; it doesn't seem to fit with the rest of what's in that view, and
it wasn't reliable in my testing.  I did however throw together a
little contrib module for testing, which I attach here.  I'm not sure
we want to commit this, and at the least someone would need to write
documentation.  But it's certainly handy for checking whether this
