Patch to implement buffer cache recycling for scans, as being discussed

A few questions come to mind:

How does it behave with Jeff's synchronized seq scans patch?

I wonder if calling RelationGetNumberOfBlocks on every seq scan becomes a performance issue for tiny tables with for example just 1 page. It performs an lseek, which isn't free.

What happens if multiple backends choose overlapping sets of buffers to recycle?
