So, this is the latest version of this patch in the shape of the
option 1.

| need some extra opinions is what to do with the old maps:
| 1) Just remove them, replacing the old maps by the new radix tree maps.
| 2) Keep them around in the backend code, even if they are useless.
| 3) Use a GUC to be able to switch from one to the other, giving a
| fallback method in case of emergency.
| 4) Use an extension module to store the old maps with as well the
| previous build code, so as sanity checks can still be performed on the
| new maps.
