Hello, I return to this before my things:)

Though I haven't played with the patch yet..

At the first glance, managing sync_above and truncate_to is
workable for these cases, but seems too complicated for the
problem to be resolved.

This provides smgr with a capability to manage pending page
synchs. But the postpone-page-syncs-or-not issue rather seems to
be a matter of the users of that, who are responsible for WAL
issueing. Anyway heap_resgister_sync doesn't use any secret of
smgr. So I think this approach binds smgr with Relation too

By this patch, many RelationNeedsWALs, which just accesses local
struct, are replaced with HeapNeedsWAL, which eventually accesses
a hash added by this patch. Especially in log_heap_update, it is
called for every update of single tuple (on a relation that needs

Though I don't know how it actually impacts the perfomance, it
seems to me that we can live with truncated_to and sync_above in
RelationData and BufferNeedsWAL(rel, buf) instead of
HeapNeedsWAL(rel, buf).  Anyway up to one entry for one relation
seems to exist at once in the hash.

What do you think?
