I wonder if

different memory context.
I think it would be better not to maintain so much duplicate code
between bt_page_items(text, int) and bt_page_items(bytea). How about
just redefining bt_page_items(text, int) as an SQL-language function
calling bt_page_items(get_raw_page($1, $2))?
Maybe. We can also probably share the code at the C level, so I'll look
For page_checksum(), the checksums are internally unsigned, so maybe
return type int on the SQL level, so that there is no confusion about
That ship already sailed, I'm afraid. We already have checksum in the
page_header() output, and it's defined as smallint there. So using int
here would be inconsistent.
A similar issue is that get_raw_page() uses int for block number, while
internally it's uint32. That often requires a fair amount of gymnastics
on large tables.
I'm not against changing either of those bits - using int for checksums
and bigint for block numbers, but I think it should be a separate patch.
