how would you like to see both those arrays in tuple, right now, I
think Jesper's code is showing it as string.

which comment are you referring here? hashm_mapp contains block
numbers of bitmap pages.
While looking at patch, I noticed below code which seems somewhat problematic:
+ stat->max_avail = BLCKSZ - (BLCKSZ - phdr->pd_special + SizeOfPageHeaderData);
+ /* page type (flags) */
+ if (opaque->hasho_flag & LH_META_PAGE)
+ stat->type = 'm';
+ else if (opaque->hasho_flag & LH_OVERFLOW_PAGE)
+ stat->type = 'v';
+ else if (opaque->hasho_flag & LH_BUCKET_PAGE)
+ stat->type = 'b';
+ else if (opaque->hasho_flag & LH_BITMAP_PAGE)
+ stat->type = 'i';
In the above code, it appears that you are trying to calculate
max_avail space for all pages in same way. Don't you need to
calculate it differently for bitmap page or meta page as they don't
share the same format as other type of pages?
