This is within a dead-tuple removal loop so pinskipped pages
shouldn't be increment here. If several dead-tuples are in a
page, the page will be counted as many times as the number of the

On the contrary, the page must not have been skipped since the
dead tuples are the result of a scan on the page.

The skipped *tuples* just remain dead and shown as "# dead row
versios cannot be removed yet".
