(Also: Transaction hint bits are always set correctly, because we would
only ever see a full page write with hints set after the commit/abort
record was processed. So I continue to honour transaction hint bit
reading and setting during recovery).

I'm setting ignore_killed_tuples = false at the start of any index scan
during recovery. And kill_prior_tuples is never set true when in
recovery. Both measures are AM-agnostic.
