AFAIR we never did get any clear explanation of what the test case is.
I guess it must be write-mostly, else lazy XID assignment would have
helped this by reducing the rate of XID consumption.

It's still true that I'm leery of a large increase in the number of
buffers without reengineering slru.c.  That code was written on the
assumption that there were few enough buffers that a linear search
would be fine.  I'd hold still for 16, or maybe even 32, but I dunno
how much impact that will have for such a test case.
