Ah, I see. We need 'reset' of statistics sometimes.
Now I'll propose to save the n_dead_tuples value at the beginning of
vacuum, and send the value with a stat message to subtract. The added
number to n_dead_tuples during vacuum will be left.
(This is true for now, but will be incorrect after "Recalculating
OldestXmin in a long-running vacuum" patch is commited.)
I'll send a patch that adds the above to patches.

We can adjust the number of vacuumed tuples for patial vacuums
that scan a part of heap pages. For example,
n_dead_duples_at_start * scanned_pages / rel_pages .
We can also use the actually removed tuples in vacuum for adjustments.
