We are talking about subtransactions here. I don't think we support
subtransaction wrap-around, do we ?

I agree thats the worst case. But is that common ? Thats what I
was thinking when I proposed the alternate solution. I thought that can
happen only if most of the subtransactions abort, which again I thought
is not a normal case. But frankly I am not sure if my assumption is correct.

I wonder if a skewed binary search would help more ? For example,
if we know that the range of xids stored in the array is 1 to 1000 and
if we are searching for a number closer to 1000, we can break the
array into <large,small> parts instead of equal parts and then
Well, may be I making simple things complicated ;-)
