I would like to add here, that the intention of the test was to stress
the changes of the patch to see the overhead patch can incur.  Now,
surely this is a synthetic test prepared to test this patch, but I
think it indicates that the changes have some overhead which might or
might not be ignorable depending on how important is to get this
patch.  I think if Warm tuples or indirect indexes need this patch and
they can't do without this, then it is worth considering this patch
along with those patches.  OTOH, if we can reduce the overhead, then
it might be okay proceed with this patch on the basis of simplicity it
can bring.
