BTW, your patch will cut LRU writes short, but will not encourage to

Setting a bigger default maximum is one possibility I was thinking about. Since the whole background writer setup is kind of complicated, the other thing I was working on is writing a guide on how to use the new pg_stat_bgwriter information to figure out if you need to increase bgwriter_[all|lru]_pages (and the other parameters too). It makes it much easier to write that if you can say "You can safely set bgwriter_lru_maxpages high because it only writes what it needs to based on your usage".

If it's safe to set it high, let's default it to infinity.
