To go past that problem, I've tried tweaking the StringInfoData
used for COPY FROM, like the original patch does in CopyOneRowTo. 

It turns out that it fails a bit later when trying to make a tuple
from the big line, in heap_form_tuple():

  tuple = (HeapTuple) palloc0(HEAPTUPLESIZE + len);

which fails because (HEAPTUPLESIZE + len) is again considered
an invalid size, the  size being 1468006476 in my test.

At this point it feels like a dead end, at least for the idea that extending
StringInfoData might suffice to enable COPYing such large rows.
