I believe that this should be separated into two patches, since there
are two issues here:
1. Locking a tuple doesn't clear the all-frozen bit, but needs to do so.
2. heap_update releases the buffer content lock without logging the
changes it has made.
With respect to #1, there is no need to clear the all-visible bit,
only the all-frozen bit. However, that's a bit tricky given that we
removed PD_ALL_FROZEN. Should we think about putting that back again?
Should we just clear all-visible and call it good enough? The only
cost of that is that vacuum will come along and mark the page
all-visible again instead of skipping it, but that's probably not an
enormous expense in most cases.
