Flush what prior to the scan?

The methodology I suggested earlier (involving tracking LSN only at the
level of pg_clog pages) isn't going to make that work, unless you
somehow force the XID counter forward to the next page boundary.
It might be that that level of tracking is too coarse anyway, since
it essentially says that you can't hint any transaction until the
next 32K-transaction boundary is reached.
