Ugh. Yes, relcache invalidation happens anytime and it resets the
added values. pg_stat_info deceived me that it can store
transient values. But I  came up with another thought.

The reason I proposed it was I thought that hash_search for every
buffer is not good. Instead, like pg_stat_info, we can link the
pending-sync hash entry to Relation. This greately reduces the
frequency of hash-searching.

I'll post new patch in this way soon.
