To keep things a bit more simple, and streamline, I ended up pulling
out the logic for setting the startblock into another function, which
we only call once before the first call to
heap_parallelscan_nextpage().  I also ended up changing phs_cblock and
replacing it with a counter that always starts at zero. The actual
block is calculated based on that + the startblock modulo nblocks.
This makes things a good bit more simple for detecting when we've
allocated all the blocks to the workers, and also works nicely when
wrapping back to the start of a relation when we started somewhere in
the middle due to piggybacking with a synchronous scan.
Looks reasonable. I edited the comments and the variable names a bit, to my liking, and committed. Thanks!
