Server crash was reported on running  vacuum progress checker view on
32-bit machine.
Please find attached a fix for the same.

Crash was because 32 bit machine considers int8 as being passed by
reference while creating the tuple descriptor. At the time of filling the
tuple store, the code (heap_fill_tuple) checks this tuple descriptor before
inserting the value into the tuple store. It finds the attribute type pass
by reference and hence it treats the value as a pointer when it is not and
thus it fails at the time of memcpy.

This happens because appropriate conversion function is not employed while
storing the value of that particular attribute into the values array before
copying it into tuple store.

-                               values[i+3] =
+                               values[i+3] =

Attached patch fixes this.

Thank you,
