Teach pageinspect about nbtree deduplication

Enterprise / PostgreSQL - Peter Geoghegan [bowt.ie] - 29 February 2020 20:10 EST

Add a new bt_metap() column to display the metapage's allequalimage field. Also add three new columns to contrib/pageinspect's bt_page_items() function:

- Add a boolean column ("dead") that displays the LP_DEAD bit value for each non-pivot tuple.

- Add a TID column ("htid") that displays a single heap TID value for each tuple. This is the TID that is returned by BTreeTupleGetHeapTID(), so comparable values are shown for pivot tuples, plain non-pivot tuples, and posting list tuples.

- Add a TID array column ("tids") that displays TIDs from each tuple's posting list, if any. This works just like the "tids" column from pageinspect's gin_leafpage_items() function.

No version bump for the pageinspect extension, since there hasn't been a stable Postgres release since the last version bump (the last bump was part of commit 58b4cb30).
