Mmm, good point.  I think in that case the C.F.I. had better be in
the loop in ExecHashIncreaseNumBatches, because if you were unlucky
the loop might not take the ExecHashJoinSaveTuple path for a long time.

Looking around at other callers of ExecHashJoinSaveTuple, the only one
that seems to be in need of a C.F.I. is the loop in
ExecHashRemoveNextSkewBucket, and there again there's a code path
whereby the loop doesn't call ExecHashJoinSaveTuple.

Will CFI-ify all three places.
