There is one problem at this point. If we want to guarantee that there
are no tuples that XIDs are older than pg_class.relfrozenxid, we must scan
all pages for XID wraparound for every vacuums. So I used two thresholds
for treating XIDs, that is commented as follows. Do you have better ideas
for this point?

 * We use vacuum_freeze_min_age to determine whether a freeze scan is
 * needed, but half vacuum_freeze_min_age for the actual freeze limits
 * in order to prevent XID wraparound won't occur too frequently.

Also, normal vacuums uses DSM and freeze-vacuum does not, so vacuums
sometimes take longer time than usual. Doesn't the surprise bother us?
