Thanks for drafting that, but isn't the query wrong?
Specifically the bit about

    SELECT blkno, pg_freespace(oid::regclass, blkno)
    FROM generate_series(pg_relation_size(oid::regclass) / 
                         pg_relation_size(oid::regclass, 'fsm') / 2) AS blkno

It looks to me like this is approximating the highest block number that
could possibly have an FSM entry as size of the FSM fork (in bytes)
divided by 2.  But the FSM stores one byte per block.  There is overhead
for the FSM search tree, but in a large relation it's not going to be as
much as a factor of 2.  So I think that to be conservative we need to
drop the "/ 2".  Am I missing something?

                        regards, tom lane
