We'll also have to clobber caches after we finish decoding a 2pc xact,
since we don't know those changes are visible to other xacts and can't
guarantee they'll ever be (if it aborts).

That's going to be "interesting" when trying to decode interleaved
transaction streams since we can't afford to clobber caches whenever
we see an xlog record from a different xact. We'll probably have to
switch to linear decoding with reordering when someone makes catalog

TBH, I have no idea how to approach the genam changes for the proposed
double-scan method. It sounds like Stas has some idea how to proceed
though (right?)
